The new school building next to the existing Romersadt school became an exciting challenge due to the discovery and excavation of a Roman place of worship. In the planning of the integrated, year-round curriculum it was necessary to create space for four branches of the school with interdisciplinary learning groups.

The building complex comprises four buildings, which are arranged around a shared forum. The four building blocks with identical floor plan experience slight rotational variation. Three of the blocks will be three-storeys without a basement, one is two-storeys with a basement. On the upper floor there is space for classrooms, childcare and meeting rooms as well as a large common room. On the ground floor there are specialist and group rooms, computer room and library.
