Project updates

Today the new Noorderpoort school for vocational training in Stadskanaal (the Netherlands) celebrates reaching its highest point. Mecanoo designed a modern and sustainable learning environment of 8.500m2 where theory and practice are intertwined.

Construction started last February at a beautiful green location and is proceeding as planned; the contours of the building which was designed like a country estate, are now clearly visible.

The school will open its doors in 2014 for 1.300 technical, healthcare and business students. Furthermore, the building offers a multifunctional meeting place for companies and associations from the area.
