ICS Integrated Comprehensive School Rinteln

The Rinteln Integrated Comprehensive School was planned to be barrier-free, integrative and sustainable. It is designed as a demountable solid wood building with a timber frame façade; almost all essential structural and building components remain visible in the interior. This makes the timber construction an initial component of the design concept. Pleasant room atmosphere and material haptics are combined with rational production, short construction time and a future-oriented energy concept.

What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
A wooden building of this size is atypical for the region of Lower Saxony – the school is currently considered the largest wooden school building in Northern Germany. Its façade is made of larch wood cut in the client’s own forestry operation. Building physics measurements confirm the above-average values with regard to acoustics – despite the difficult implementation in the lightweight timber construction.
– District heating from biogas 100% regenerative (distance of the biogas plant approx. 300 m)
– PV system on the roof surface with a capacity of 176,000 kWh/a
