This Summa College accommodates health and welfare training courses and, after extensive renovation and extension, covers an area of 16.700 m2. The school entrance was located in the inner square and the school faced away from the Genderpark. In the diederendirrix design, the school and park are interrelated and unimportant side buildings are removed so that the inner square becomes one with the park.
The school can be recognised by the new entrance on the Willem de Rijkelaan which also serves the park. The dated, disorganized interior is completely removed and replaced with a flexible layout. Sliding elements are envisioned for the now empty floors and may consist of offices, conference rooms, group rooms, etc. The positioning of these elements also allows larger rooms such as lecture halls, instruction classrooms and demonstration areas to be created.
