Featured Project: Graafschap College, Doetinchem, Netherlands

VISION

Taking inspiration from the surrounding trees, Graafschap College wanted a new and innovative type of building envelope design for 5,600m2 of extensive sports facilities. A unique façade that would increase natural daylight and outside visibility, so as to enhance comfort and learning performance for students and staff alike.

TRANSFORMATION

To deliver a light and airy atmosphere troughout, this project brought together Kawneer’s AA100 & RT 72 Reflex curtain walls and doors, alongside block windows with hidden wings. Combining functionality and style, the finished result has established a bright, open educational environment dedicated to concentration and collaboration.

REALISATION

With a limited height and transparent façade featuring a rust-brown organic tree design, Graafschap College is a unique building that fits seamlessly into its environment and welcomes in lots of natural light. The thermal façade is highly insulating, while the weather-resistant metal construction helps to reduce the internal heat load.
