A deteriorated school had to make way for the first all-day school in Mülheim-Kärlich.

Twelve new classrooms, six multi-purpose group rooms, a library, administration offices, a cafeteria and PC laboratory as well as quiet learning space create an ideal learning environment.

The two-storey school complex with pitched roofs consist of two wings connected by a hallway. It leads into an inner courtyard, in which a third, one-storey building with a roof terrace is located. This makes it possible to teach outdoors during the summer months.

One of the buildings was given a canopy facing the inner courtyard. The entire assembly was largely of concrete construction. Wood and steel are used as for the roof and canopy construction.

Numerous asymmetrically arranged windows in the outer walls influenced the structure on the ground and upper floors. With careful analysis, irregularly spaced supporting, reinforced-concrete columns achieved the desired architectural outcome.
