Merlet College – a School with a View

Located next to the river Maas, this sustainable, multi-functional secondary school offers some amazing views of the dikes and flood plains. Large, interconnected interior spaces such as the auditorium, the canteen and the central hall are the heart of the school. Reusable materials were chosen based on the colour palette of a female martlet. The building is highly sustainable through the use of river water for cooling and heating and CO2-controlled natural ventilation. This minimizes the use of ducts and air handling units. In the façade, rain water is discharged through a large waterfall into a nearby wadi for infiltration into the soil.
