Two neighbouring schools designed by Otto Glaus (and partners), Bullinger Vocational School from the 1960s and Hardau Primary School from the 1980s were to be extended. The co-existence and interpenetration of essentially very different urban fragments makes the perimeter into an exciting but difficult part of the city that is characterised by strong contrasts. The existing building fragments were augmented by employing specific tailor-made measures, their spatial presence is strengthened and they are connected to the new outdoor space. The Vocational School, a listed building, is an exposed concrete ensemble somewhat like a monastery. It is augmented with building volumes developed out of the logic of the existing fabric and is given a second entrance.
