Tovatt Architects and Planners got the assignment through the office Modellera, now a part of the Tovatt Architect & Planners office, to design an extension and a reconstruction of the Herrängen school in Älvsjö in southern Stockholm. The school was growing and in need for more spaces for studies, and new facilities for sports, offices, a canteen and a kitchen.
The existing school is situated idyllically in the middle of a green small scale residential area. The new building carefully compliments the existing structure of brick houses. The new red brick buildings further strengthen the well-defined schoolyard and it adds distinctive and playful details to the composition.
