Oirschot Children's Centre sits in the centre of the village, on the former site of Paulusschool primary school. Today, the site houses Oirschot Children's centre, Paulusschool primary school, Korein out-of-school childcare and nursery and the SKOBOS (Catholic Schools Foundation) administration.

The design

Together with the client, users and architect, De Meeuw worked hard on the design for the new construction of Oirschot children's centre. The design is a translation of the collective vision for child education and care. The result is a spacious design, which captures the visual expectations, ambition and atmosphere.

This applies to energy, indoor air quality, climate comfort, visual comfort and acoustic comfort.

  • Client SKOBOS
  • Architect Bonnemayer Architects
  • Business Consultant Cofely - sustainability specialist
  • Project manager Sweegers and de Bruijn

1. Underfloor heating to replace radiators
