According to the plans by the architects Berger + Parkkinen Architekten, with Vasko+Partner responsible for the structural planning and technical building equipment, the existing primary school building was extended after demolishing the gymnasium and the classrooms above it, along with the adjacent building complex along the church square, with an extension added in its place. Together with the adaptation and renovation of the existing structure, it formed a new school complex. The building's basic structure seems to follow the classical "Vierkanter" type.

The four sides are formed by the laboratory wings and an office wing. However, the entire building is slightly elevated to allow views of the surroundings from the center. Instead of the enclosed courtyard typical of a "Vierkanter," a urban space with diverse connections to the environment is created. The new public square serves as a gravitational center for life throughout the campus. The new construction consists of a reinforced concrete skeleton, with the upper part featuring a ventilated stone cladding made of rough-cut natural stone, while other areas are equipped with an external thermal insulation composite system (VWS) facade or large glass facades. Inside, the walls have been plastered, as well as the ceilings in the common areas. Suspended ceilings are only present in the sanitary areas and partially in the corridors.
