About the campus
Letovo School is a real town where students and teachers live side by side and above all, feel at home. We want to make the life of our little town as rich and interesting as possible, we want the academic life to be conscious and effective and the leisure to be diverse and absorbing.
The infrastructure of Letovo school consists of 19 thousand square meters of premises, 10 houses for students, 3 houses for teachers, 40 classrooms, 1,000 seats in the theater, 5 library rooms, 9 scientific laboratories, 4 sports halls and 1 stadium. Despite its impressive size, the campus is the place where everything is at arm's length. All premises are designed specifically for children to be accessible and proportionate to their needs. The school has no endless corridors and empty halls, the main building consists of a variety of educational zones and facilities, where everyone finds a convenient place for work and leisure. Thanks to the 24-hour security post, CCTV cameras and other technologies, the school is a quiet and safe place for every child.
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.
Winner of the 2016 Moscow Architecture Committee Award in the nomination for The Best Architectural and Urban Planning Solution for Education and Medicine.
