Vuosaari High School

The building adapts to a compact multi-level site with cascading terraces and public stairs.
The shared facilities in the high school will serve the whole local community.

Vuosaari High School

    Description:

    The new high school will be centrally located in Vuosaari, a martime local centre in Eastern Helsinki. It complements the developing neighbourhood: the high school will be a significant public building serving also the local community.

    The high school adapts to a compact multi-level site by a railway. Its entrances, cascading roof terraces and ample public stairs enliven the streetscape on three levels.

    The Vuosaari High School emphasizes music. Therefore it has a cluster of rehearsal rooms, studios and stages, but we also designed the lobbies and outdoor spaces to work for performances as well.
