Extension Corlaer College, secondary school

Nijkerk, The Netherlands

2014 - 2016

Corlaer College in Nijkerk, a secondary school designed by Broekbakema in 2003, is in need of more space. The number of students is growing, therefore the building needs an extra 1450 m2 and some changes on the existing building to enlarge the cafeteria, the departments and to accommodate the subsequent growing number of teachers. The school was designed to be easily extendable; the main structure is clear and when the façade was designed in 2003, reuse was already a main theme, making it more cost-effective to expand the building at this point. The design and atmosphere of the existing building are sustained in the new part.
