From the 2023 Architectural Portfolio: American International School of Zagreb

Feb. 26, 2024
The project was recognized as an outstanding design in the Combined-Level Schools category.

This new high-performance K-12 International School in Zagreb, Croatia, unites a personalized learning environment with Bundek Park. Multiple courtyards, green roofs, and community space form the heart of the school. The simple, orthogonal plan weaves outdoor and indoor spaces to engage students with the outdoors, promote wellness, and foster an atmosphere where success is achieved through interdependence. The school provides an aspirational and welcoming community setting where both foreign dignitaries and elementary students can feel at home.
