Something like that can go to school. In 2009 the Katharinen elementary school, the so-called Hafencity School, was officially inaugurated in Hamburg. There the teachers and employees offer the children high-quality all-day care. Built by the architects Spengler Wiescholek from Hamburg, the school building offers an unusual highlight. And high is high here.
Because the school playground for the children is on the dizzying roof of the building.

The X-TEND not only serves for security, but also for greening the school yard. Since the beginning of school, there are very beautiful vine plants to look at. The entire construction received an award for the unusual design at the presentation of the German Urban Development Prize.
