location Amsterdam
function secondary school
contributed by Kirsten_Hannema

The use of light in architecture has long been confined to the interior where it remained largely invisible to passers-by. Tangram Architects have succeeded in abolishing the barrier between the illuminated inner world of the building and the city outside with their translucent extension of a secondary school. The architects wanted their extension to give new impetus to the school as a whole and to the use of the outdoor space around it. Colour and light are crucial ingredients for the new wing and give the school a new identity. The lighting, integrated with the internal walls, ceilings and furniture, defines routes through the building and its different functions. At night the multicoloured areas of light lend the gardens and the school yard a theatrical quality.
