The new building of the VMBO Elde College is located in the ‘Kloosterpark’ in Schijndel and is part of restructuring plan to replace the outdated buildings. The new building is focused on the future and has an transparent, bright appearance. The building exists of three floors: a glass substructure above which a white, plastered two-storey volume levitates. Part of the rooms are small to facilitate special needs classes. The quiescence in the building is guaranteed due to strategic guiding the traffic flow. In order to guarantee quality and comfort, the design is based on the principles of the “Frisse Scholen”. In terms of sustainability, several measures have been taken to unburden the environment and minimise the energy consumption.
