In harmony with nature
The building is at ground level and very open. There is plenty of room for playing, working together, talking and celebrating. The oval shape makes the building extra special, giving it a very natural appearance and making it blend into its surroundings.
The core of the building consists of multifunctional areas, then there is a circulation zone with learning areas, then a ring with tribe areas and next to that play areas. Finally, there is the connection to the park. This structure resembles the annual rings of a tree.
Each tribe group has an outside door and its own outdoor playground. This greatly expands the learning and living space area. The spacious and light hall is ideal for presentations, celebrations and meetings.

in harmony with the environment
The building fits seamlessly into its surroundings. With its quiet and natural colours, it is a picture for the eye. The schoolyard, too, has been designed to be as natural as possible. The children can play in the adventure playground. Local residents do not have to look at bright colours, but can see natural wood elements. There is no fence around the building either. This means that the park is fully integrated with the school building. A wonderful synergy.
Despite being a modular building, it will remain standing for at least forty years. Completely flexible. Because with the exception of the columns, the building is completely modular. All the walls can be taken out and moved. The building has been designed to be sustainable. Almost completely energy neutral (BENG). There are solar panels on the roof and solar collectors may also be installed in the future.
The building is gasless, all-electric and has an air-cooled heat pump that provides heating and cooling. This is an unprecedented building that fits in perfectly with the park.
