Niemenranta School

Honorary mention 2014


The architecture is a combination of local tradition and contemporary accents. The building pays tribute to the regionalist Oulu school of architecture, but the references are reinterpreted in a relaxed modern idiom and complemented by fairface and polished concrete. The school is an appealing environment for learning – fresh, but not faddish.
