The project is a new school designed for the town of Birmenstorf in Switzerland. The building has been conceived as a public building where the educational program takes place, selected as part of an invited competition. It is Focketyn Del Rio’s first realized school, challenging the traditional idea of an educational building.

The Out School is an attempt to explore a new design vocabulary for pre-primary schools. The aesthetics, spatial planning and the architectural detailing is a direct response to the constraints that revolved around this project.

It starts from the imaginary of the treehouse, where the main idea of being in contact with nature and discovery, allows to stimulate learning from a concept that meets the methodology used in school.
