Brede school Houthaven

Brede school Houthaven

Marlies Rohmer’s design for the Broad School Houthaven Amsterdam is inspired by the architecture of the Amsterdam School. The building accommodates two existing primary schools, a day care, after school care, business premises, a catering area and kindergartens.
They made use of sustainable materials. The materials in the classrooms – glass, concrete, smooth stucco – reflects all the noise. This gave the acoustic damping special attention. The solution was to place 6 row high stealth cabinets.
The community school Houthaven will form the link between the old and the new Spaarndammer Houthaven. Houthaven is a location where freighters from all over the world unloading their tree trunks a century ago and is (as seen from the IJ) behind the Silodam.
Realisation: 2014
