Text description provided by the architects. ADP architects and SH Studio designed an extension to accommodate the new media library of a secondary school in Drachten (the Netherlands). The extension is located in a courtyard of the existing building of the school and carefully designed to maintain a good view from the surrounding classrooms on the first floor of the existing building. The roof of the extension is located on eye height when you are on the first floor, the sky is still in sight, but there is also a visual connection with the library on the ground floor.

The timber construction of the new media library is built up from oak beams, it gives the new media library its very own identity, the warm and friendly ambiance of a greenhouse, very suitable to make homework in small groups or individually.
