The reconstruction project of Tauragė Martynas Mažvydas Progymnasium aims to improve the energy efficiency indicators of the building, adapt the building to the needs of people with disabilities, and create and modernize learning spaces by implementing the ideas presented in the project proposals for renovation (modernization) of schools’ educational spaces. It was planned to implement arrangement solutions for the land plot and renovate the sports field.
The project envisaged the reconstruction of the football stadium and running tracks, installation of new sports sites, reconstruction of existing and installation of new pedestrian paths and sites. The project also envisaged the demolition of the existing pitched roofs, insulation of the building, and arrangement of the interior spaces.
It was aimed to highlight the main entrance to the building by installing a larger and higher roof, thus creating a visualisation of a much larger main entrance. Because the building consists of several blocks, in order to highlight this, each block was painted in a different colour. In order to make the windows look larger, their sides were covered in a plaster of a darker colour, and the dull façade was decorated with brightly coloured volumetric elements that made the building look more playful.
The hall located next to the main entrance has an amphitheatre where the students can sit down and rest. In this space, a guard room from glass partitions and turnstiles with access control (magnetic cards) were installed.
The project envisaged to move the library and reading room to more spacious premises with windows that offer more pleasant views to a nearby park.
On the first and second floors of the main block, it was planned to make openings from the corridor to the premises and install narrow and high windows which would allow more light to enter to the corridor. Modern LED lighting is to be installed in the corridors, which will perfectly coordinate with the aforementioned corridor windows.
Nearly 600 children will be studying in the school.
During the preparation of the project, a spatial design program was used for digital building information modelling.
