Sweco won the assignment to design the new addition totalling 5,000 square metres and the reconstruction of the existing premises at Ålleberg High School.
Assignment: Ålleberg High School
Area of expertise: Architcture
Client: Skanska and Municipality of Falköpings
Period of assignment: 2013
Responsible Architect: Charlotta Andersson
The new main building serves as a link between the old and the new, and is key to the design. The main building has become a meeting place and serves as a hub for the entire school area, in addition to which it ties the various academic programmes together.
The building comprises two volumes: one tall hexagonal tower and another building wrapped around the tower that resembles a band-shaped necklace. The design of the school was inspired by the famous Ållebergskragen, a thick golden necklace from the Iron Age that was found on the site.
