A new beginning for Don Bosco Groot-Bijgaarden03 Sep 2016
For the Schools of tomorrow project, architects CONIX RDBM Architects constructed a new building on the campus of Don Bosco’s in Groot-Bijgaarden. The Don Bosco Institute is a campus (2 school sites), which includes a kindergarten, elementary school and secondary school with over 1.200 students. In addition to the classrooms, there is also a brand new sports hall with a climbing wall and fitness/dance room. The new building is located between the two existing school sites and is an extension of the existing sports hall on the campus for secondary education. For the design, materials and techniques, sustainibility and energy efficiency are central aspects. Within the interior space, special attention was paid to transparency and views throughout the building; the wall opening in the building is precisely positioned to permeate the green surroundings from different directions.
