The „Bildungshaus“ (education centre) in Düdelingen
A combination of school, daycare facility and sports hall

The Bildungshaus as a showcase project

An education centre for 186 children is being built on an area of approximately 5,000 m², including a day-care centre, studios, rest, reading and handicraft rooms, a parents' café (a total of approximately 3,700 m²) and a sports infrastructure (approximately 1,250 m²). There will also be a large playground and green areas with walking paths. The execution planning and construction work is coordinated by IBB Baugesellschaft as general contractor. The construction project is part of a new educational concept in Luxembourg, as primary school and childcare will for the first time be located under one roof as a combined facility.

The Bildungshaus shows a great charisma

The building is located in a development area (11.9 ha), which comprises 240 residential units (houses and apartments). Thus, the new quarter has its own school, sports and leisure infrastructure. The entire north-eastern façade and the ground floor in the south-west shine like red clay, the two upper floors on the south-western side are enclosed by timber-framed structures. The modern infrastructure convinces with its great charisma.

Flexible structural elements

Especially striking: The seemingly random arrangement of the windows of different sizes. They give the massive building an amazing lightness. Brightness and natural materials dominate the interior of the building. Diverse colours and lighting moods differentiate the various room areas, group rooms can be flexibly rearranged with structural elements. Each floor has an outdoor area that can be used creatively. After school hours, the sports hall is also accessible to outsiders.
