PROJECT: REHABILITATION AND EXTENSION OF “FAN S. NOLI” SCHOOL
- PHASE: BUILT
“Fan S. Noli” school is situated along “Qemal Stafa” street in Tirana. The rehabilitation design for this school was part of a bidding procedure, organized by the Municipality of Tirana. Our concept designs made possible for us to win the first prize in this competition. According to the task of design, our project presents the following proposals: • Extension of columns in the north-eastern area with a surface of 106 m2 yard rolling on 3 floors. • Extension of columns on the south- eastern area with a surface of 140 m2 surface rolling on 3 floors. • Extension of the boiler room. The total area of the existing building is 2280 m2. The total area of the proposed extensions of the building is 770 m2. The extensions in the north-east and south-east of the yard have made possible not only the increase of the classrooms, but also the increase of their surfaces becoming more functional. So for example in the north-east of the school is added a recreation hall at the entrance of the school. It is expanded the library on the first floor, which now consists of two rooms, the hall of books and the reading area. It is also added to the second floor, the multifunctional and recreation room where the students can promote their artistic creations. There are two existing laboratories (chemistry and biology) and is added a physical laboratory. 9 classes were added to the southeast. The conditions of the gym have been improved with the addition of restrooms and the changing rooms. The project provides the restoration of electrical and sanitary according to current regulations. The curves of the central volume make the school entrance much more inviting.
