We analyse the spatial potential of existing school buildings and advise schools on how to alleviate the stress linked to the rising numbers of pupils. First of all, we conduct on-site visits and observe the school´s daily life. In a second step, we examine the gathered information with the school principal, the day-care principal, and the parents. Together we define the priorities, the responsibilities and a timetable for their realisation. Next steps and future developments are envisioned.
