Not often do you come across a site, and a program, which already fully indicate how they should be planned and used. The original site can be read as a small park-like environment, with at its centre a neo-romantic vill housing classes and offices. The required extension, almost tripling the original situation, could easily suffocate the site and the villa.
In order to guarantee the park-like quality a campus is proposed, safeguarding the most monumental trees.Since the site borders onto two streets, two front sides can be developed – the villa and a small double tower. Both volumes interact with both the streetscape and the crowns of the trees. They also aim at minimizing the footprints. The villa houses the required offices, while the double tower stacks the classes in the most straightforward way possible. The third program – a venue/sport shall - is perfectly camouflaged behind a brick wall extension. In doing so, the original brick wall running around the park is completed, programmed and restored.
