Ector Hoogstad Architecten is selected by De Haagse Scholen to design a new building for the Annie M.G. Schmidtschool.
The plan shows a building that is not only accurate and appropriate, but also fun, positive and maybe even a bit recalcitrant, Annie M.G. Schmidt worthy.
At the Jacob de Graefflaan the school will look out over a number of houses. That’s why we present a volume that on the one hand encloses the playgrounds and on the other hand serves as a sound wall. The heart of the school consists of the entrance hall followed by the playroom, together to be transformed into a theater. A large void connects this central space with the class rooms, situated on the ground floor, first floor and an attic. Behind this main volume we locate the BSO and a gymnasium. In the new building, 17 groups, a fully-fledged gym accommodation and spaces for out-of-school care (BSO) will be realized. The replacement new building meets today's educational housing requirements and will be future-proof for an exploitation period of 40 years. In addition, the school is carried out according to the BENG (Nearly Energy Neutral Building) requirements.
The new building for the Annie M. G. Schmidt School is a total engineer under the responsibility of Ector Hoogstad Architecten, with IMd Raadgevende Ingenieurs (construction) Wolf Dikken (installations and building physics), Branksma Groep (contractor)
