Åmot school will be a meeting place for the local community. The school will promote collaboration and contact across classes, but also across different groups in society.

The school includes classes for children from 10 to 15 years of age. The plan should reflect flexible use, and at the same time all classes must have permanent classrooms.

Building compact gives environmental benefits regarding both materials and heating.
The emphasis of good light conditions, and at the same time shading on the facades to the east, south and west, will provide less energy use for lighting and cooling.close >>
