The annexe for the secondary school in Velen is a two-storey 36x36m structure.
The class rooms are built around an assembly hall in a U-shaped way. The open side of the U marks the entrance area, which extends over the full two storeys. A paned inner courtyard at the heart of the building makes for natural light for the inner part with corridors and the hall.
The façades are characterised by large panes, which let much light into the class rooms.
Inside we have smooth materials and floors of natural stone.
