transformation of Oude Ambachtschool Zwolle

The listed school building from 1934 has been transformed into a residential building. On the ground floor the classrooms were converted into studio workshops and on the floors above into starter homes: high and light rooms with a core block for sanitary facilities and kitchen. To facilitate comfort within the homes, double fronts have been added behind the steel-framed fa├žade. In this way the elevation remains intact and the living space is shielded against sunlight, noise and heat loss.
