Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to competently deal with questions of spatial design in the context of historical buildings, real-life caes and contemporary functional adaptation.
They will be able to design a spatial and functional program and evaluate the respective advantages and disadvantages.
In addition, they will be able to develop design variants in a comprehensible manner and apply the knowledge gained in subsequent projects.

Subject of course

The primary school in Schöngrabern is the starting point for this design programme. This building, consisting of two classrooms and a gymnasium, dates back to the 19th century and will soon no longer be used for its original purpose. For this reason, the possibilities for a subsequent use should already be studied now. In the current consideration, however, the adjoining building should also be used. However, the neighbouring environment should also be intensively included in the current consideration. The neighbouring parish church, which is significant in terms of art history, appears particularly striking and is surrounded by a no less interesting open space. The slightly sloping terrain within the larger ensemble is also noteworthy. Moreover, adjoining properties in the immediate vicinity are also to be actively drawn into the expected development scenarios. The village itself used to suffer intensively from high through-traffic, but this has recently been reduced considerably by a bypass road. Now, within the framework of the design exercise, the aim is to combine utilisation concepts with architectural measures that contribute to a meaningful neighbourhood development. The main objective is to develop a realisable overall concept and a concrete, usable design solution for the site in question. 

Teaching methods

The rather unusual course of work starting with the aspects of design work initiates a multitude of questions and queries. Thus the first stage is dedicated to finding an individual approach to a key topic. Thereafter those aspects in terms of utilization and functions are dealt with in particular which result from the specific way of approaching the project. On a total the experience with spatial design is increased and the use and correlations of colour, light and materials is practiced.

Examination modalities

What is required is the development of a concept for the design assignment. Subsequently, the implementation of the draft on a scale of 1:100 (plan presentation, model building) is to be provided. In addition, characteristic areas are to be represented on a scale of 1:20.
