The Puotila Primary school is tailored to teach up to 600 children of various ages. The meandering façade allows plenty of natural light to enter the learning environments while simultaneously forming protective nooks in the school yard. The central plaza gathers the students and users of the two–storey school. The multifunctional building will also provide recreational spaces for the local inhabitants.
As a life-cycle project, the Puotila school has been designed carefully and in good partnership with Lujatalo Oy and Helsinki city as well asalongside the other designers including Nomji Landscape Architects as the landscape designers and Sitowise Oy as the engineers.
Ongoing construction, scheduled completion in 2022
