The site is characterised by the french train tracks that slice through the urban tissue and the ring road at the juncture of the city. This juncture is defined by the turn of the structures of the 19th century, the building developments of the 1920s and the ribbon development of the 1950s. The existing school complex by G. Panozzo borders All Saints Church by Hermann Baur to the north-east. The classrooms are grouped in one building, the other houses the auditorium and the gymnasium. The insertion of the two new buildings into the existing tissue forms a new intelligible urban order. The outer facade of the classroom wing is characterised by ceiling high transparent or reflecting glass panels. The envelope of the auditorium is made of glass elements with spun glass inserts. These inserts create the impression of a translucid paper-like facade that shines like a lantern at night time.
