At Ypenburg, the new branch of the Atlas College of Rijswijk occupies a characteristic location at the entrance to this new district. The programme covers four floors interconnected by large voids and staircases. The main plan of the building is simple, consisting of a ring of classrooms around a number of large assembly rooms.
Daylight enters the areas within the ring through skylights and patios. Within its deceptively straightforward exterior, the building manages to create a many-faceted world of light, air, and space that does justice to the school's theme, 'stirring splendour'.
