ROC Mondriaan Laak II
The new building is situated on a narrow plot, perched between the busy railway lines at The Hague HS Station and the Waldorpstraat. The position, close to the public transport node is an excellent strategic choice: the school campus that is formed here in conjunction with The Hague University of Applied Sciences, the student and entry level housing and the resulting social life, is directly connected to all forms of (public) transport and is situated in the middle of the city. The building forms a powerful and colourful (a la Mondriaan) completion of the Leeghwaterplein. Seen from the train, it serves as a calling card for ROC Mondriaan. The building has a grid shaped concrete fašade decorated in the ROC colours. The effect in combination with the windows results in a strong whole. An arcade follows the pedestrian route from the train station to the housing complexes and Megastores shopping mall. Large glass areas along the arcade provide a glimpse into the school.
