Vossius Gymnasium in the Architecture Yearbook

14 June 2021

The Yearbook Architecture in the Netherlands 2020-2021 has recently been published. Pieters is proud to have participated in various projects that are covered in the book.

A very nice project that is highlighted in the book is the Vossius Gymnasium te Amsterdam.

The school building of the Vossius Gymnasium was designed in 1926 by Nicolaas Lansdorp in a 'tightened' version of the Amsterdam School. The building, which was special for its time, was characterized by spacious halls, stairwells, two gymnasiums with showers and a special auditorium; it is now a national monument.

For the Vossius Gymnasium in Amsterdam it was clear: new gymnasiums had to be built.

Designed by Marlies Rohmer Architecture & Urbanism, the building has undergone a renovation, including two competition sports halls and an extension to the courtyard. The seven-meter high sports halls have been built nine meters deep below the courtyard.

The underground halls receive daylight through three skylights, which are lined with benches above ground. The access to the sports halls with lift is included in an extension, which also houses study space and related areas
