This centre for education and childcare (in Dutch: brede school) houses a primary school and two organisations for baby- and childcare. Because these parties had already worked well together before, it was possible to design a multi-use building with unorthodox spatial solutions in the process. The building is organized around an open central space, used by all parties. Here stands a yellow, cone-shaped volume with the libary and a small theatre/stage. The building is also organized by age. The rooms for the younger children are on the ground floor; these all have their own partly-covered exterior. The rooms for the older children are on the first floor; these have a French balcony. The building is under a sloping roof that rises gradually from one storey to two-and-a-half, which gives room to some sub-level floors and a dry main entrance. Both inside and outside, wide stairs lead from the ground floor to the first floor. These stairs are also used as galleries during events.
