Serge Schoemaker Architects was appointed to oversee the renovation and extension of the primary school after a design study carried out under the umbrella of the Mevrouw Meijer Foundation in 2015. This foundation is pioneering a new vision of school construction that is no longer based on demolition and new construction and that rediscovers the qualities of schools from the post-war period in the Netherlands. Spacious and bright classrooms make post-war schools like this ideal for renovation.
