Sited in an old factory block the new internal court of the school is connected to the adjacent riverside bank. Parts of the complex are torn down to bring light into the deeper parts of the building, structures are sandblasted to expose the consistency of the concrete, and the new building parts and walls are made transparent to secure an aimed social transparency of the institution.
