College De OpMaat in Hilversum
Seeing and being seen is the way things go in the new secondary school, College De OpMaat in Hilversum. The way things are organised around the central hall and atrium enables formal and informal supervision everywhere in the school. This is necessary for the students in the preparatory secondary vocational / curriculum-supporting education (Dutch: VMBO-LWOO) who need extra support. An eye catcher in the central hall is a magnificent staircase with a display wall that includes large and small showcases.
The two gyms are elevated in order to save ground floor space and make optimal use of the plinth course of the building. The low situated ribbon-window, immediately above the gym floor, provides a pleasant light atmosphere without blinding the gym users. The practical classrooms in the plinth course are like display windows on a street.
