As a private school for more than 500 children from at least 50 different nations, the Oslo International School should adopt special facilities for advanced studies. That''s why they commissioned Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Architects to do a renovation project, so the 1960''s (which was worn down) can have such functions.
The international school building is divided into kindergarten, reception, primary and secondary school. The primary goal of the building project is to upgrade existing areas, replace temporary structures and establish new educational areas for specific needs. The project is divided into 3 phases to make possible continuous use of the school during the construction period.
With reference to the qualities of the old structure, the newfangled buildings are coordinated around three new atria suited for play and recreation for the different groups of children.
The existing atrium is established as the quiet garden with white gravel, benches and greenery suited for quiet play and conversations. Two large existing oaks are preserved. The atrium in phase two has a rubber floor suited for play for the smallest children. The open school yard towards the west is planned for ball play.
