Enhancing the learning environment in Hessenwaldschule with daylight and fresh air.

When facing the task of replacing the old school building, Hessenwaldschule went for a design that supports optimum learning, lives up to sustainability criteria and blends in with the beautiful natural surroundings.

The pavilion-style architecture is connected by a large, central atrium covered with VELUX modular Longlights. The atrium skylights serve as the main source of incoming daylight and fresh air and provide a comfortable space for playing, learning and resting.

  • The atrium skylight solution comprises 84 Longlight 5-30° modules.
  • The installation of all modules was completed in just four days.
  • The skylights provide solar heat gain in winter and can be opened for ventilation in summer.

The entire school community of students, parents and teachers are very positive and excited about the new school.

The architecture is great and the amount of light is fantastic, and so is the temperature. We’ve got an ideal climate here. It’s not just an indoor climate; it’s a learning climate.
