Primary school de Dukdalf

Temporary new primary school in Leiden

Temporary new building with sustainable quality

There was no possibility of a new building, but the city of Leiden gave permission to build temporarily for ten, maximum 15 years. The Jenaplanschool Dukdalf wants to grow into a child centre where the building facilitates new forms of education. Is this a question of incompatible principles? No. Algeco proves that temporary buildings can be flexible and sustainable.

Quality of new building

The population development in the neighbourhood stagnated, but the school has steadily grown to some 400 children now. Because the school also wants to be a child centre, with a playgroup, childcare and other neighbourhood activities, a temporary extension was allowed. The school did want the quality of a new building and the opportunity to give shape to Jenaplan education.
