From the architect. To improve the urban situation in the district Beijum in Groningen the client, the city of Groningen gave the command to move the school. The new school is built parallel to the canal. The historic dike along the canal, the most prominent landscape element was integrated in the design of the school.

The corridor, plays an important role in the Montessori education. It follows the dike profile and forms the backbone of the building. Several areas, such as learning spaces, library and the teachers room, collars on the dike. Subtle rotations in these areas create long sight lines across the channel.

The large hall is open to the sunken playroom. This is also a stage with the audience in the playroom. An eight meters wide staircase rises along the dike to the floor, and also serves as a seating object.

The school will be the new iconic building in the district Beijum. The exterior of the school got a fresh look. The color white dominates and contrasts with the somber, gray-brown colors of the surrounding buildings. The color white is also intended as a statement of a new start. The other facades of the school are performed in a "warm" wood trim.
