international character  

Almere aims to become a hotspot for international companies and its employees. This international school is key when it comes to providing the children with a good education. The international character has been central to the design. In total there will be space for about 700 children, between the age of 4 and 19 years old.

living heart  

In a playful design of three linked building blocks, we form a recognizable unity, with different zones both inside and outside. The various age groups each have their own learning environment that remains clear and small-scale. The central part forms the living heart of the complex, aimed at meeting and a wide range of communal activities, for which it will be equipped with corresponding facilities.

holistic thought  

In the central area, the school's holistic ideas come to life perfectly: eating together in an assembly hall surrounded by greenery with a view of the vegetable garden, performances and rehearsing in the drama room, making music in the adjacent music room and learning together in the library a floor higher. It all happens here in a clearly visible place in the building.

green oasis  

The plot offers plenty of space for greenery around the school. By making smart use of this, small areas are created in a natural way, which are arranged thematically. A separate playground will be created for the younger children. The green oasis with fruit trees and various types of shrubs and plants is also perfect for educational purposes.
