Due to the steadily increasing number of students at the Tyrolean Vocational School for Photography, Optics and Hearing Acoustics, the school operator is striving to expand the available space and to adapt rooms that are currently inadequate to the needs of the school and the authorities. About 2/3 of the 160 students live in the boarding school associated with the school during the training period. Since 2012, the school management has been forced to use two containers on Kaiser-Max-Strasse as permanent classrooms. In addition, due to a shortage of space, car parking spaces have been rented out at the rescue site in Hall. In summary, with the spatial resources currently available, it is hardly possible to make do with the day-to-day running of the school.
Challenges to be overcome:
In order to obtain an open/flexible floor plan on the ground floor, the ceiling above the ground floor is suspended on the wall panels and the parapet on the first floor. The upper floors then follow this structural system as far as possible.
In the existing building, some load-bearing walls are removed. The loads from the floors above will be supported here by means of steel columns and/or steel frames.
