In conjunction with a children’s farm, a Nature and Environment Educational centre (Natuur Milieu Educatie) is developed in the Elzenhoekpark in Oss. The development will take place, together with the restoration of vistas and walking routes, when the entire park is restructured. diederendirrix gave the educational centre a prominent position in the park so that the estimated 90,000 annual visitors could find their way through the park without difficulty.
With a length of almost 55 meters, the farm is typical of a long walled Brabant farmhouse. The entrance to the farm is formed by an open section with a gate. From here access to the veranda is possible and the farmyard is clearly visible. The educational centre, exhibition rooms, cafeteria and meeting hall are all linked by the veranda. Warm and natural materials are used for the farmhouse – the roof has a subtle rounded crest and is covered with heather and the walls are clad with wood.
