The consortium of Spring Architects and MoederscheimMoonen Architects was awarded the contract to design the landscape and buildings for the new Revius Lyceum in Doorn. The partnership resulted in a design that matches the school mission:
Compact and transparent
The school building is compact, with different study areas and rooms located around the dynamic heart of the school. The numerous windows and the transparent layout of the building provide direct daylight and contact with nature. The sports building was also designed 'in the landscape'. The sports halls were built around an historic tree that the students pass on their way to sports lessons. The outdoor area has also been structured in such a way that it can be used to learn in and from nature, to exercise, to relax, to make music or to have discussions.
The design refers to the estates in the Utrecht Heuvelrug area and it is actually a three-storey building in the shell of a two-storey building with a roof. The building has, as it were, acquired a second outside wall furnished with coloured steel slats.
The steel structure and the steel slats were delivered and assembled by Staalbouw Barneveld from Renswoude. They were hot-dip galvanised by Rotocoat and the steel slats were then powder coated by Rotocoat in RAL1007 daffodil yellow, RAL8007 fawn brown, RAL 2000 orange, RAL7022 umbra grey and RAL3009 oxide red.
The beautiful autumn colours of the slats give the school a playful look, ensuring at the same time that the school fits in with the surrounding landscape.
