MBO Bonaire Gebouw B&V

The school community with vocational education (MBO), adult education B&V of Stichting FORMA and preparatory vocational education (VMBO) (learning line technique and hospitality) will be renovated and renewed.

The building ensemble is like a small village. The various schools and functions are housed in different building volumes that are located around a court yard covered with a large roof. Between the volumes, the cool wind blows trough the ensemble. When passing the central entrance, the students can reach all the schools and functions from the court yard. This is the communal space and serves as the auditorium of the school. A large grandstand stair leads to the spaces on the second floor.

The different building volumes are connected by roofs and galleries. The layout and cuts in the volumes create smaller squares where lockers can be found. These covered outdoor spaces are highly visible, but due to the scale of the spaces, they offer somewhat quieter places to meet and take breaks.
