The Mesterfjellet School project combines a new 1st-10th grade school with 3 parallels and a public health centre in a new building that is linked to the existing sports facilities at Farrishallen. The project is based on the idea of a very compact building with a minimal footprint. First of all, this makes it possible to reuse the old foundations of a previous school building, which is important due to highly complicated geotechnical circumstances. Secondly, it leaves more outdoor park and playground area for the children and creates distance to neighbouring houses. This underlying idea resulted in a new building typology, which we call “the vertical campus”.
