location Leeuwarden
function secondary school
contributed by jeannedekkers

This 'double school' is located in the green zone of a North Leeuwarden district. The school is built on a specially created island that literally serves as a bridge (bręge) to education. The building robustly towers over its surroundings. The façade profile protrudes increasingly and this makes it an elegant building, with a lot of incident light in the central courtyard. The brick façade segments are markedly horizontal, which increases the plasticity. Inside, the wooden panelling is lineated likewise. Each school has its own wing, to be used separately or jointly with the rest of the building. The class rooms are located along the façades. Facilities that do not need daylight are located at the heart of the building, accentuated by a pear-shape and a pear-colour. A large atrium centralizes all functions. Round skylights underline the clear building structure. Transparency towards the classrooms is realized by the use of glass - positioned so that the students are not distracted.
