reconstruction and extension'Kettelerschule' Catholic Primary School, Bonn
The Catholic Elementary School (KGS) 'Kettelerschule', which was built in the 1960s, is being rebuilt and expanded in accordance with the pedagogical concept of the Montag Foundation Jugend und Gesellschaft. The concept envisages the promotion of students who are predominantly from a rather troubled environment. In addition, the school should be anchored more strongly in the district.
From the twelve classrooms to date, a total of eight learning families will be created. In addition to a classroom, each of these learning families has a room for the "Playful Experience", which is also equipped with a kitchen as well as rooms for brushing one's teeth. A multifunctional forum not only serves as an auditorium and sports area, but is also available as a venue for the district. In addition, rooms for the midday care as well as special and specialist rooms are created.
The originally single-storey building A is dismantled to about 60 percent and supplemented by a 2-storey building that clearly bounds the schoolyard to the north and the approximately seven-meter-high forum. On the ground floor of the extension, the administration rooms and the staff room are located, above which are two new learning families. The old building accommodates two further learning families. Old building and extension surround the forum.
The 3-storey component B is completely redesigned inside. The eight classrooms on the upper floors are being renovated and transformed into four learning families according to the educational concept of the Montag Foundation. On the ground floor, in the area of the former auditorium, the rooms for the midday care including the kitchen are being developed. The administration and staff rooms are replaced by special rooms such as library and workroom.
