Alphen aan den Rijn is turning into a real city. The developed Bonifacius location has also become an area with urban construction. The new Bonifacius school is the first step in the new urban plan that FARO is making for this part of Alphen.
The appearance of the building fits into the current urban architecture with a brick plinth under a light metal façade. The brick is enhanced with arcs: characteristic, recognizable and strong. The lighter upper façade has horizontal lines and contrasts with color and texture. Building the new school is part of the grander scheme for the Bonifacius location that also houses new apartments, assisted care residences, shops with a parking garage and, in the old school building a hotel or restaurant.
