Mittelschule Neudörfl – Neudoerfler at school
Height-adjustable tables, flexible lounge furniture, space for personal items and much more – this creates an ideal learning and working atmosphere for both teachers and students. At Mittelschule Neudörfl a new learning environment was created on three levels for around 180 pupils. Wood plays an important role in the interior design. This ensures an improved room climate and has a calming effect.
During the planning phase, the Neudoerfler advisory team contributed their specific know-how about interior in the educational sector. The middle school should be modern, warm and cozy and also offer an ideal learning atmosphere with sufficient space for communication and interaction. In addition to the recurring material wood, invigorating splashes of colour were required in the rooms. The colourful Neudoerfler shelves on the walls of each classroom set accents and offer storage space for school books, gymnastic equipment and the like – all at the same time.
Classes that are not only colourful, but also versatile.
A total of ten classes were equipped with tables, shelves, acoustically effective pin boards and a teacher's work area. The school desks are available as double desks and as single desks – this provides the greatest possible flexibility whenever the setting needs to be adjusted during the lessons. The tables are equipped with a basket and a hook. The school bag can be practically stowed away there and notebooks quickly disappear under the table surface during the break. The height of the school desks can be adjusted using a cordless screwdriver. The height can be varied individually between 1st and 4th class, so the table grows with the pupils.
Next to each class there is a room specifically designed for group work where the pupils can work on tasks in small groups and teachers can offer special support during team teaching.
Acoustically effective cabinets for more peace and quiet during long breaks.
A place to exchange ideas with one another is also in demand for teachers. The staff room offers around 25 workstations on large worktables, so-called benches with an integrated power strip for charging laptops and network connection. To ensure the right acoustics even during break time, Neudoerfler – as a room acoustics expert – has adjusted the fronts of the cabinets with acoustically effective drill holes. The teacher's cloakrooms, storage space and seating possibilities in the kitchen have been individually designed.
The alternation between sitting and standing when working is the healthiest. Therefore, high tables such as the Motion Talk invite the user in the teachers' room, library and day care center to work while standing.
Flexible furniture encourages creativity and togetherness.
Afternoon childcare takes place in a large day care center, where homeworks can be done and there is plenty of space for creativity. Sofas and beanbags are ideal for concentrated learning as well as playing together.
In the assembly hall and in the corridor area, flexible lounge furniture forms a center for communication. The pieces of furniture can be moved around by the students during the breaks, so that different settings can be created for different uses. Every child also has its own locker to stow valuables and to assure them that their snack is safely stored.
Read, learn and laugh.
The library should not only be a storage place for books, but also offer interested children a comfortable place to read. With movable stools that can be placed anywhere in the room, groups of friends and study groups can come together flexibly.
