Each of the three floors of the energy neutral building is customized to house the various education clusters for language, science and social studies education. The clusters are connected through the central atrium with the large bleacher staircase, the lecture hall, the science lab and the world studio. The sports and dance profile of the school is visible everywhere: from the auditorium that can be used as a theatre and dance hall to the façade that refers to gold, silver and bronze medals. On the outside, large sunny terraces connect indoors and outdoors on all floors. The building thus provides plenty of high-quality outdoor spaces for all students and staff on the limited plot.
