Mansikkala School, Imatra
The school, which will become Finland’s largest wooden school upon completion in 2020, will accommodate 1,350 children and young people. The new school centre will be an airy multi-function complex with healthy indoor air. It will house a maternity clinic, upper secondary school, adult learning centre, youth services, student services and premises for various associations. In its design, special attention was paid to accessibility, noise control, the number and adaptability of teaching spaces, safety and outdoor activities. The wooden school complex will be realised as a life-cycle concept.
