Martino-Katharineum grammar school, Braunschweig

Martino-Katharineum grammar school, Braunschweig


Martino-Katharineum grammar school

This simple cube serves as an extension of the traditional grammar school in Braunschweig. Its large, asymmetrical windows provide a glimpse into the modern school building and lend the architecture an individual character.

During the day, the foyer is flooded with light streaming in through the large glass front. Once daylight starts to fade, the luminaires encased in opal glass, ensure the room is evenly lit.

Coloured accents in a uniform red blend harmoniously into the architecture and create adynamic and uplifting environment. In a deliberately irregular pattern, the recess-mountedceiling luminaires continue this positive atmosphere.

In the events room too these irregular patterned recess-mounted ceiling luminaires serve to break up the formality of the room. With their advanced LED technology, the luminaires also ensure the room is lit with optimum brightness. These luminaires are available in two different light colours. With 3000 K (Kelvin) for a warm white light or with 4000 K for a neutral white light.

The extension was necessary due to the transition to a full school day. As well as the events room, the new building is equipped with additional seminar rooms, a media centre, music and assembly rooms and a theatre stage.
