the oslo international school is a private school in norway by jarmund/vigsnaes arkitekter with 500 students from over 50 different countries. the school has a mixture of regular classrooms and special facilities for advanced studies. the new design was planned to replace the existing facilities and built in three phases so the school could remain open during construction. the new structure was based on the previous one, combining a simple one level plan with good natural lighting.

 

the organically shaped walls are covered in wooden panels that are treated on the outside and whitewashed inside. the phase 2 façade features fiber cement board combined in 10 different colours. the new school is based around three central atriums that are used for play and recreation spaces, while the existing atrium is now a garden for quiet contemplation.
