Narva Estonian School is a part of the educational complex consisting of a state secondary school and gymnasium under one building, a kindergarten in a separate building, and a public park behind the kindergarten. The project includes the reconstruction of the existing historical part of the school and the design of its new modern extension.
The goal of the project was to keep the “face” of the school open, respecting the architecture of the existing part as well as keeping with the historic perimetric building pattern at the same time.
Since 2 different institutions are located in one building, it is divided into a secondary school area, a gymnasium area, and a common space in between. The common area used by students of both institutions includes a multifunctional lecture hall, canteen, and library.
