The educational concept of the “Munich Learning House” (Münchener Lernhaus) is the starting point for the development of an intelligent and constructively mature learning house module that consists of four classrooms each, two interconnected rooms for full-day care and a working area for teaching and support staff, all arranged around a central communal space.

All rooms have direct access to the outside via access balconies surrounding the rooms, which enables unrestricted use of the entire learning house in compliance with fire protection policy.

To counter the risk of monotony and anonymity, our design creates characteristic rooms with the selected barrel vault.

This not only conveys a sense of security, but also generates high distinctive value. We see this special spatial quality, which can be experienced by teachers and pupils, as the opposite of a stereotypical modular structure.

The four primary schools with full-day care are located on the former military compound on Ruth-Drexel-Strasse in Oberföhring and in the Bauhaus Square in Schwabing, as well as in the Freiham housing development in the Gustl-Bayrhammer-Strasse and in the Aubinger Allee.
