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.
