Letovo Educational Centre Moscow 2021–2021
The Letovo Educational Centre comprising an elementary school and kindergarten has been designed as a cluster of buildings, individual but with a shared DNA. It generates a unique ‘Letovo’ aesthetic which will allow students to identify with Letovo as ‘their school’.
An aspirational school, the new buildings are sustainable, designed to outlast fashion, so over time they become an educational landmark, and with a longevity to survive harsh winters and become part of their landscape. All spaces are seen as a place to learn, designed around a community core and with circulation routes kept to a minimum – there are no dead ends and a student’s daily life will be one of learning encounters.
