Campus Eemsdelta is a new school campus located in Appingedam, The Netherlands. Three secondary education levels, a practical study project, and a sports cluster are merged into a single facility consisting of several buildings totaling 16.600m2.
Together with the surrounding outdoor space of 4ha, the buildings form an integral learning landscape that meets the educational needs of all schools and ensures a natural interaction with the environment.
The new Campus Eemsdelta will accommodate 1,700 students, is energy-supplying, circular, and earthquake-resistant.
The surrounding landscape is organized into different landscape-themed rooms. The rooms stimulate active use, but also give space for tranquility, relaxation, and contemplation.
Sculptural objects are placed within the rooms, which encourage specific use: a greenhouse in the nursery, a toolshed on the square, an observatory in the biology garden, a boulder wall, and a multi-court along the beach.
