De Fakkel Utrecht community & school

Great school – in a newly beautifully renovated schoolbuilding by Brique architects – to design their new schoolyard. An energetic interactive participatory design process with children and teachers,  resulting in a rather large set of very diverse wishes.

Semi transparant wooden walls bring unity in the area and zone the diverse places. We created a more intimate backyard for the youngest children, with curved lines and discovery paths, re-using the old climbing iglo as it will be overgrown with willows! The front yard, public space, has a more formal character, with straight lines, a huge atelier-table out of re-used poles. The bright yellow lines in the pavement communicate with wooden facades of the new building.
