Bellaterra, Barcelona, Spain
May to September 2015
The Til.ler Waldorf school in Bellaterra already had programs for kindergarten and primary education, so the project was to build a location for a secondary school. This project was particulary interesting because the property arranged for the construction was rented land – so the school building needed to be easily re-locateable in the case that the school rented different land in the future.
Points of Interest
1. The entirety of the building is able to be semi-deconstructed and moved to new locations as needed.
2. This school very nearly meets the qualifications of a “Passive House”, as it needs no heating elements.
3. The project was designed, built, and placed in 5 months.
4. All materials used were ecological; for example, the insulation is composed of natural cotton.
