The Hansa-Gymnasium in Hamburg-Bergedorf is extended into an all-day school following a number of conversions and new builds. The construction work includes the extension of a 1970’s classroom wing, the renovation and conversion of the basement to a cafeteria with a kitchen for reheating food, as well as the integration of a new building and schoolyard into the existing building complex. The new building serves as a multi-purpose recreation hall and connects the listed building designed by Fritz Schumacher to the 70’s classroom wing. The saw-tooth roof design maximizes the use of natural light for the multi-purpose use of the hall.
