KAAN Architecten, in collaboration with VORM, have designed a new 11,000 square-meter Education and Study Center (OZC) for the University of Tilburg in the Netherlands. The OZC will be used by approximately 2,500 students and educators on the campus. The goal is for the new facility to increase the quality of education at the university.

The design of the center mirrors the square and low form of other buildings on the campus. The OZC is nestled within the landscape, and provides ample views from within to observe the environment. The programmed study spaces are “enclosed in a green setting, as an opening in the woods.”

Along with designated study spaces, the center will also include fully equipped lecture rooms and a centrally located sunken auditorium. All of the interiors, including the corridors, are wide and tall so that the building never feels too crowded.

Construction will begin at the end of this year and is expected to be completed by the fall of 2017.
