Schule Contiweg0767 | Contiweg 5, Aspernstraße 3–5 | 1220 Wien | 2010
Students of Aspernstrasse are greeted by lentiform shapes twining around the glas front of the building. The new school in Hirschstetten was designed as a structure with two horizontally emphasized classroom wings. The »Contistreifen«, consisting of a courtyard, atrium, outside staircase and open spaces, serves as a backbone between the public front courtyard and the private area of the inner courtyard. The glass south-facing atrium with the library in a distinctive loft conversion gives an architectural identity in an area with few other architectural landmarks.
