Originally constructed in the 1960s, Oslo’s International School was worn down and in need of an update. The private school, of which 500 students from over 50 nations are represented, renovated the building in three phases to optimize the school’s usage and functionality. The construction established new educational areas in the building, in addition to structural renovation.

While paying respect to the previous design, the one story building’s new fixtures create three recreation areas for children. The walls are organically shaped and the school’s façade is covered with multicolored boards. The simple additions to the building create an inviting and playful environment for the students.
