The German School in Madrid, which was inaugurated in October 2015, is Germany's largest civilian construction project abroad. Comprising an elementary school, high school, kindergarten, gymnasium, auditorium, canteen as well as a covered courtyard, the area covers over 27,000 sqm.
The building is a complex monolithic reinforced concrete construction that consists of five structures connected by a wide-span dome with a steel shell that resembles pergolas. It houses the modern facilities and infrastructure required for a modern and evolving educational system. The white-faced concrete, a special feature of the project, is present throughout the building as well as the plentiful open spaces, which were designed in response to central Spain’s climate conditions and culture.
