connecting pergolas  

In the sketch design, the new Coenecoop College consists of two rectangular, flexibly divisible educational volumes, each of three layers, with a transparent central atrium in between. The volumes are slightly offset from each other. A wooden pergola structure along the building blocks enhances the visual unity.

school of the village The atrium is a connecting link between the two educational volumes and a dynamic environment. It functions as an entrance, as an auditorium and as main access. A wooden main staircase forms one whole with a playful stand with seats. The atrium can be rented out independently in the evenings and weekends, which contributes to the desired character of the Coenecoop College as 'school of the village'.

green well-being  

The Coenecoop college will be a healthy learning environment with an agreeable climate and good orientation options. Sight lines are long and the greenery of the surrounding grounds is extended through the atrium and the school. The walkways also have substantial greenery. The largely transparent facades contribute significantly to the relationship between inside and outside. The new teaching building will also be gas-free and will meet the requirements of both Frisse Scholen and BENG.
