Superstructure, Elementary School - Novatop

Superstructure, Elementary School

The unused land was transformed into two new classrooms and two teacher’s offices. The low weight of the entire wooden structure, which minimizes the load on the original building from 1935, was the key criterion in choosing the solution. NOVATOP roof panels easily cope with a large span and large openings for lightguides with a diameter of 750 mm. At the same time, the wood inside was left visible. Assembly of the structure took 4 days.
