TALLINN – The building of the Tallinn German Gymnasium is about to be opened on Monday following a 12.6 million euro reconstruction.

The reconstructed school building consists of three units, one of which is made up of classrooms, the second of administration and teacher rooms and handiwork classes, and the third of a sports games area, a swimming pool, an assembly hall and a canteen, spokespeople for the Tallinn city government said.

The new entrance of the school building has been executed in the form of an atrium connecting two levels, which faces a courtyard furnished with outdoor furniture and equipment for physical activity. 

The first level of the sports complex houses a swimming pool, a sauna complex and changing rooms with exits to the swimming pool and the stadium. The second floor houses a sports games hall with changing rooms. The halls can be used also for extracurricular activities, during which time access to classrooms is closed and the area is kept under guard. 

The design of the building is by ConArte OU and the contractor in the reconstruction project was RAMM Ehituse OU.
