The Tiunda School

  • area / size 166,840 sqft
  • Completed 2018
  • Location Uppsala, Sweden,
  • C.F. Møller Architects completed The Tiunda School as a space for both traditional and emerging learning in Uppsala, Sweden.

    The vision is to create the learning environment of the future by designing a modern elementary school and preschool that are attractive, secure and accessible for everyone.

    The Tiunda School is for children from preschool to the 9th grade, and its structure is simple and robust. The brick facades are a link back to the site’s history – the old brickworks. The design of the interior reflects the structure’s simplicity and robustness and gives space for playfulness and inspiration.

    A shared connecting space on the ground floor combines a bistro, square, main staircase and several shared learning environments. This gives ample space to develop a sense of community and pride in the school. C.F. Møller, in collaboration with Anna Törnqvist, a school building expert, has developed a school that offers flexible, future-proof learning environments. The spatial design is matched to the needs of a traditional organization, yet it also opens up new opportunities, including more varied working methods and seating plans.

    The new building also includes preparation kitchens, an after-school club, and a new sports hall. The school and its schoolyard are attractive and inviting, playful, stimulate social contact and inspire safety and security.

    As a dialogue-based turnkey contract and collaboration, the project ensures quality and results, creating openness and awareness. The project includes the demolition of the existing school and building the New Tiunda School.
