This Swiss school received a new visual identity

Swiss Elementary School Architecture

At a Swiss elementary school in Greifensee, it was time for a facelift. The building walls had seen better days and the campus appeared less than inspirational for the approximately 300 students.

Thanks to the expertise of Prof. Paul Bürki, a renowned architect and lecturer on design, a visual concept was created. Using a range of solid colors combined with typography elements, the various buildings had received a fresh coat of paint during summer break.

A visit to the school confirmed that the implementation of Bürki's concept has created a more inviting environment.

Two main buildings, the music lab, the gym and the indoor pool have been completed so far. Additional buildings remain to be labeled according to Bürki’s visual concept. (Next in line will be red and orange.)
