Social heart of the community

NOAHH | Network Oriented Architecture as Architects

In the rolling dune landscapes of Westvoorne, the multifunctional center and elementary school MFC BS Rockanje is designed as the social heart for the community. The versatile building accommodates primary school De Zeewinde, daycare Het Pierepotje, an after-school care facility, the library, the music school and various sports and cultural associations. The exterior of the building is robust and the facade is composed of sand-coloured brick, a poetic reference to the colour of the surrounding dunes. The central atrium seamlessly connects all the different facilities, users and visitors, and is the central meeting space of the building, as it holds a vital social function for the village of Rockanje. The roof is draped like a sheet over the different areas in order to create a clear and strong form, and literally brings all users together under one roof. The wooden-clad interior is bathed in natural light through the placement of large roof lights. 

NOAHH believes that it is imperative for architecture to evolve and continue to adapt to the ever-changing wishes of the users, and strives for flexible structures that can adapt to future developments. In its design for MFC BS Rockanje, NOAHH has considered the fact that in the near future, when the school requires less space, a Center for Youth and Family (CJG) can be housed within the building. The building has a multifunctional, clear layout. It has an open lightweight steel frame structure, and almost all interior walls can be removed, thus making adaptability easier in the future. The atrium of the building can be divided or combined with the adjacent multifunctional areas through a large flexible partition wall.
