School of Sammonlahti

Competition entry

We took part in a design competition organised by the city of Lappeenranta. The task was to design a new school building in Sammonlahti.

The school building, which was named Sammontalo Kairos, is half circle shaped allowing the maximal utilization of natural light and views over the green areas. The building was to be made from ecological, healthy and sustainable materials; a frame made of Finnish durable wood and concrete, steel solutions to complement the structures, and a facade of spruce.
