At Ypenburg, the new branch of the Atlas College of Rijswijk occupies a characteristic location at the entrance to this brand-new residential area. The programme has been divided over four floors linked in space by large voids and staircases. The main plan of the building is straightforward, consisting of a ring of classrooms around a number of large lobbies. Daylight enters the spaces within the ring through skylights and patios. Within its deceptively simple and clear exterior, the building manages to create a many-faceted world of light, air and space that does justice to the theme of the Atlas College, ‘stirring splendour’.
If you want to visit the building, please contact the school: firstname.lastname@example.org.
