Recently, construction company Subissati Srl. built two new schools at two different locations in Italy – the first in Rimini and the second in the province of Pesaro and Urbino. The two new schools have something in common: both are clad with Rockpanel facade boards and insulated with ROCKWOOL products.
Montessori primary school Rimini
The new Montessori primary school in Rimini is located a short distance from the old building, which has been demolished. One of the main objectives for the new building was to stay true to the founder’s method to use natural materials to offer the children sensory experiences throughout the building. Subissati adopted the same criteria when selecting materials for the new school building.
The two-storey building has a total floor surface of about 1,800 square metres and includes 10 classrooms, a library, a teachers' room, toilets and a courtyard. The north-west facade is made of white plaster, whereas for the south-east facade a ventilated facade construction was used to increase comfort especially during the hot summer. In addition to being anti-seismic, the new Montessori school will have a near zero energy performance, will be equipped with solar panels and does not have a gas connection.
