1.Main building

Main building
In Letovo we don’t segregate middle and high school, into mathematical, humanitarian and economic classes. That is why the educational building is designed in a way to trigger children's interest in different disciplines and activities. Students may be aware of all the events occurring in the school, thanks to glass partitions between classes. The heart of the building is the Atrium – the meeting place and the intersection of three wings: sports, arts and sciences. Instead of long corridors we created spacious and comfortable recreation areas and cozy classes for small groups of pupils. There are more than just classrooms, we have conference rooms with round tables for project activities, rooms for individual studies and various library zones. Almost all educational space in Letovo is transformable and multi-purpose. Classrooms could be combined into a lecture hall or examination halls, and a multi-level atrium, if necessary, turns into a theater hall for 1000 people.

The security of all inhabitants of Letovo is one of the top priorities of the support team. The school has a checkpoint and a security post. The security system provides 24/7 video surveillance of the school, the territory perimeter and the surrounding area. We cooperate with a security contractor who guards the campus around the clock, using a modern IT system to warn immediately security of any emergency or abnormal situation.

Thanks to the 24-hour security post, CCTV cameras and other technologies, the school is a quiet and safe place for every child.

Architectural concept

To create a harmonious educational environment, we looked at the best schools in the world and held an international contest, in which 30 architectural bureaus with experience in constructing unique educational buildings participated. Among those who assessed the projects were Moscow’s chief architect Sergey Kuznetsov and architecture critic Grigoriy Revzin.

The project by Dutch bureau Atelier Pro, whose portfolio already contains dozens of schools around the world, was acknowledged as the best. The architectural workshop Atrium is the main designer of the project.

In December 2016, after construction began, the Letovo School campus was awarded ‘Best architectural and town planning solution for an education and medicine construction’ by the Moscow Architectural Council. The winners were chosen by a professional council, which included leading Moscow architects, heads of large project bureaus and international experts.
