The Torkinmäki School building in Kokkola was built to last as a life-cycle project. The basis of design was coordination and the adaptability of spaces. The rooms in the building have been divided up into cells, according to the ages of the pupils.
The modular luminaires of the Airam Plateia series with microprism optics and Dali control suitable for the suspended ceiling system were selected for the general lighting. If desired, the teacher can adjust the LED lighting wirelessly. The system is very suitable for places where rooms can be combined or divided into smaller sections using movable walls and furniture. With standard light control, lighting is pleasant and even throughout the day.
As a result of the building’s energy efficiency, the gold certificate of the LEED environmental impact classification was achieved.
