Education Centre BG 5

Ector Hoogstad Architecten has been selected as the designer for the restoration of building BG 5 in the heart of Amsterdam. BG 5, a national monument that was designed in the second half of the 19th century, will be transformed into an education centre for the Faculty of Humanities. Our winning proposal adds a spacious new atrium to the heart of the building, connecting three important aspects of the project: the central location of the building within the new campus, the public function with a central food court and restore the former glory of the monumental facades. The atrium and adjacent education spaces are a key example of our knowledge landscape and encourage social interaction.
