New construction Gymnasium Zugspitz­straße

Project description

After the gyms of the Zugspitzstraße primary school burnt down on 20/04/15, WBG KOMMUNAL GmbH was commissioned by the City of Nuremberg to replan the location of the Zugspitzstraße primary school and to realise a corresponding new building.
 As a new replacement building, a dual gymnasium with associated operating rooms as well as various other primary school rooms were then to be realised to cover the current shortage.
 The dual gymnasium is directly adjoined by a two-storey, two-flush building block. Its corridor side facing the sports hall contains the sports equipment rooms on the ground floor and the changing rooms on the upper floor.
Due to this positioning of the changing rooms, access to the halls is via a separate cleanwalk staircase. The other primary school rooms, including the break hall, a multi-purpose room, the music room and the EDP room, are essentially located on the other side of the corridor of the two-part building wing.
 With the new building, the outdoor facilities and break areas were adapted and new climbing equipment was built for the playground and the streetball facility was repositioned. The running track for outdoor school sports was repositioned. In the future, children will be able to learn to ride a bicycle under supervision in the outdoor playgrounds.


Zugspitzstraße is located in the north-western part of the Nuremberg district of Langwasser.
