The ISS-Mahlsdorf is the first of three construction projects to be rebuilt as part of the Berlin school construction offensive. Up to 2026 the Berlin Senate Administration will have provided around 5.5 billion euros for the renovation and construction of schools. The architectural office named NKBAK planned this modern wooden school, which was built for the first time in Berlin.
The material wood was also used inside the building. The walls and the banister were covered with spruce wood. In order to set colourful accents on the wide corridors, colourful niches in a strong orange, sunny yellow and sky blue were built as retreats. Each niche has its own colour theme, which extends from the floor to the walls, furniture and ceiling. Marmoleum from Forbo was used for the colour of the floor in the niches. This was also installed in the corridors and classrooms. Because of to the CO2-neutral production and the natural raw materials, this floor covering fits into the overall ecological concept of the new building.
