The extension of the Wetzikon vocational and further education school comprises two units with three or two storeys and an underground connecting structure. The two buildings were constructed as a single-skin solid structure with exterior thermal insulation. The façade is made of prefabricated concrete elements. The interior surfaces in the classrooms and common rooms are constructed in board-textured fair-faced concrete.
