In our architecture, public space is synonymous with social space. Sint Jozef Geel is the perfect example of this principle: by elevating the first-floor plane, we created a new high-quality leisure space underneath the building, which led to a new pedagogical insights.
On the exact location where the Christian Lyceum Veenendaal opened its doors more than fifty years ago, a beautiful, futureproof, and (almost) energy-neutral school has been completed this November! Reuse, circularity, and identity are central to its regenerative design.
We wanted to design a futureproof, nature-inclusive school campus in harmony with the beautiful surrounding heathland landscape: an inspiring school with a clear focus on outdoor sports and practical learning.
