SML (SENEZH MANAGEMENT LAB)
The concept of the project is based on the key components determining the identity of the new school.
It is innovative, unique, adaptable, environmentally and structurally smart, responding to the needs of its users.
The ecological setting of Solnechnogorsk served as one of the starting points for the design of the project. The architecture of the school creates a unique environment of the interconnected interior and exterior spaces with an intelligent zoning strategy.
The main learning facilities are located at the northern quarter and the living and recreational facilities are located at the southern quarter. The mature forest sits in the middle of these zones. The forest functions as a physical and psychological “filter” and green recreational zone.
Under the column-free large space of the CANOPY (a continuous roof structure running across the site), timber-constructed building modules (CLT – cross-laminated timber system) are placed in a way allowing to optimize the flexibility of the use of space.
The project is characterised by the rich mix of diverse public spaces and landscapes valorising its location at the heart of the unique ecological site
