Assignment

The Bärstad School is located in a forest area and is surrounded by tall pines. To ensure the best possible result, all of the parties involved were incorporated at an early stage, pursuant to a methodology known as Design dialogue. All of the parties have worked together and participated in four workshops. “A touch of the countryside” served as a touchstone during the process.

The Bärstad School is now also certified in accordance with the Environmental Building Gold standard.
