The British School of Amsterdam a former prison transforming into British School
The British School of Amsterdam (BSA) offers a British international education to 900 children aged from three to 18. The BSA chose to transform a historic penitentiary to house its three scattered schools (Early years, Juniors and Seniors) along with community facilities. Old situation
The architectural assignment was a challenge. The closed and introverted nature of the prison had to be reconciled with the world-oriented spirit of education. In addition to the 6,762 m² renovation of the municipal monument, 7,361 m² new construction has been added in a harmonious manner. The logistics and routing within the old prison was used as a basis and the new program components were attached to it. Each building section, or wing of the prison, is a specific school. The central hall is the meeting point for everyone, the halls in the wings are used by the different schools.
From left to right: Learning square for toddlers in the corridor area; the cells were broken open to create larger teaching spaces; transparent connection between old and new; arched rooms, 6th form common room. Right: “The Globe”, a central meeting place for young and old
EMBRACE THE EXISTING The panopticon, the central space, underwent a true transformation. The dome, galleries and clean masonry walls were renovated.
BEFORE REDISCOVER ORIGIN The old concrete 1980s extension on the west side of the jail has given way to an appropriate brick building section that houses the gymnasium. REMEMBERING HISTORY One cell has been preserved as a reminder of the striking history of the building. Presumably this was the cell where, during World War II, resistance fighter Hannie Schaft, also known as “the girl with the red hair, was imprisioned.
REVIVE OLD LOGISTICS
REVEAL AGAIN Over the years, the monument had had various functions and undergone a number of renovations. Many original elements were lost as a result. Yet it turned out that there was still a considerable amount of monumental work to renovate.
Cell wing. The original narrow galleries were less than a meter wide in many places. These have been widened by inserting steel elements into the voids to create more spacious meeting and circulation areas.
BREAKTHROUGH Cells were broken through to create larger teaching spaces. By definition, a prison has a closed and dark character. By adding recognizable new openings in crucial places, we have created an exciting and light learning environment with plenty of contact with the outdoors.
CAREFUL RESTORATION The interior walls were carefully stripped of various layers of paint. The clean masonry was found to be in deplorable condition and was thoroughly restored to bring it back to its original condition.

Museum infill and restructure of the Allard Pierson institute a hidden gem at the Oude Turfmarkt Atelier PRO designed the new construction and renovation for the Allard Pierson, a monumental university knowledge and heritage institute of the University of Amsterdam. A transparent infill has been realized within the existing building lines. With the transparent new construction made of steel and glass, this ensemble remains legible and the various heights were linked with a new facade. By connecting the new extension space with the existing spaces in the building, a more compact routing through the collection presentations has been created.
The sloping facade bind the various heights of roof and facade levels.

Inner street and historical gate used at the time as storage.
UVA Library of Extraordinary Collections spatial intervention in historic surroundings The library building of the Extraordinary Collection of the University of Amsterdam on the Oude Turfmarkt forms an entrance gateway to a unique collection, which contains one of the centres of medieval literature. The complex is a listed building and is a part of the historical canal-side facade. Research on the development of the historical facade played a role in the concept forming for this library. Despite strict building requirements, atelier PRO saw chance to fit the hefty program in the ancient structures. This design is a breakthrough in a decayed nineteenthcentury building, an existing courtyard could be covered and now serves as an ‘inner street’. Within the very complex context a clear structure has arisen. The gate restored.
A new glass bridge intersects the gate.
One of the reasons for the renovation was to improve the logistical connections. Due to the large distances and many height differences, the building was almost unusable as a library. The solution was found in a breakthrough in a dilapidated nineteenthcentury building.

Scheldehof Residential Care Centre old shipyard transformed into residential care centre The monumental Zware Plaatwerkerij (Metal sheet factory) shipyard building in the heart of Vlissingen, and the adjacent site, is transformed into a residential care complex with residences and public functions. The closed facades were open up through the extensive use of glass. Internally, three levels of residences were suspended like a standalone piece of furniture in the vast space. The new building beside the factory fits well in scale and appearance with the surroundings, built from yellow masonry with a small scale corresponding to the side street. The residences are organised around a winter garden. The structure and infrastructure are especially designed to enable the dwellings to adapt to changing functions in the future. 0

Multifunctional Community School Huis van de Heuvel a new ensemble Cultural centre Huis van de Heuvel stems from the reshaping and expansion of the exceptional church designed by Granpré Molière; a national monument in ‘De Heuvel’, a reconstruction neighbourhood in Breda. A part of the programme is formed by an MFA with a catholic and public primary school, a gymnastics hall, an extensive social cultural centre with an open house, a community worker, a youth health centre, a playgroup, a day care centre and after- school care. The existing garden between the church and the new build has been used as the connecting link, providing a winter garden and courtyard. Church by Granpré Molière restored
The design for the interior of the church consists of inserting a ‘white volume’ as a piece of furniture that seems to float in the side and middle aisles. The authentic details and the spacious structure of the church have been preserved and have remained recognizable

Atelier PRO office, Den Haag housing subtly fitted in dune garden Atelier PRO is located in its current location in The Hague since 1976. What started as a small group of enthusiastic professionals has grown over the years into an agency of fifty professionals with ambition. Due to the organic growth of the agency, the housing has expanded over the years. At every extension, we were inspired by the strength of the location and respect for the dune environment. This idea of “genus loci” underlies all design solutions of our architects. Our own agency is a prime example of this.

Kantoor EDGE Stadium, Amsterdam large-scale renovation and extension of an existing building from 2000, also designed by PRO In the fall of 2020, the current tenant will move from the Forum office in Amsterdam, which was also designed by atelier PRO in 2001. At the time this characteristic building was ahead of its time in the field of sustainability. The renovation will adapt the building to the contemporary demands of office use. In addition, expansion is taking place with additional office space. The main design of the building is formed by two long office wings with a central zone. This central zone consists of two transparent building volumes on the north and south sides with a large atrium in between. The atrium will have a completely new look and will be redesigned as a central space with facilities for the tenants. The new attractive entrance on the Roeskestraat is part of the largely transparent volume in which the current copper-clad heart-shaped pavilion will be integrated. With the preservation of elements that have determined the architectural image of the past 20 years, this building will again be a high-quality addition to the spatial environment and the ambitious future of the Amsterdam Zuidas.

Renovation of ING Maple, Amsterdam a second life for an office building from the eighties Atelier PRO designed the renovation of the ING Maple building. From 2019, ING Maple is part of the Amsterdam innovation district Cumulus Park, originally initiated by ING on the Bijlmerdreef. ING Maple (an original design by Broek Bakema from the eighties) is an elongated building that is connected to a parking garage, a residential block and the various levels of the Amsterdam Poort shopping area. The entire building is demolished down to the main loadbearing structure and thus has an entirely new façade that has a major impact on the appearance of the new campus. The ‘campus façade’ on the Bijlmerdreef is built up of ‘frames’ with staggered glass. Atelier PRO also designed the interior of the building.

Lumion, Amsterdam brutalist monument gets a fresh start Lumion is a secondary school for general, higher and pre-university education. The school is housed at Vlaardingenlaan 25 in Amsterdam. Use is made of parts of the monumental school building on the site. It is one of the youngest monuments in New West, and was built in 1973 to a design by architect J.B. Press. The brutalist building is characterized by the use of concrete, glass and large cantilevers. The senior grade has been realized in the renovated monument, the junior grade has been given a completely new building component that is connected to the monument through a transparent central hall. A new sports hall has also been realized on site. Lumion is the first partner of Kunskapsskolan Netherland.

The Vrijzinnig Christelijk Lyceum (VCL) is an independent school for senior general secondary education and pre-university education. Its old building is comprised of various component parts built at different points in time, with a total floor area of around 8,000 square metres. The oldest part, a villa dating back to 1903, is a national monument and has been preserved. The more recent parts, built in the 1930s, 1960s and 1980s, were replaced by new construction. The VCL had drawn up an extensive program of requirements in which they asked for a more practical, compact and accessible building while retaining the identity and positive characteristics of the original school building. Naturally, the identity of the location, integration into the environment, improvement of the indoor climate and sustainability also played a preconditional role.

the new way of waiting next to the new way of working Atelier PRO was responsible for the renovation and restoration of the monumental parts of the new city hall. We brought back as much as possible the old glory of the rooms and offices in these historical parts and have further strengthened them by creatively using color. The rooms have been carefully decorated with both antique and contemporary elements, incorporating the latest technology. These new additions fit nicely and naturally in the historical character. Our design is focused on the possibility of making choices and the extent of making adjustments. The tables can be used multi-purpose and can easily be adjusted in a large conference table set-up or divided into separate parts for smaller conversations. But also as a visitor you can choose options. Do you have to get your passport? Then you take a seat on a wooden bench. However, in preparation of a long appointment, you can withdraw into a quiet corner. We have called this concept ‘The New Waiting’.

Kloppend Hart, Warmond a wooden wave in a lush green setting combining old and new Het Kloppend Hart is a combination of the existing meeting center in Warmond and three primary schools and a playgroup. Atelier PRO devised a surprising and successful scheme to combine the functions, opening up the existing building and adding a distinctive new section. Old and new come together in a large central space, the heart of the building. As a multipurpose space it easily accommodates different functions, for instance, from meeting to learning and playing. In the existing community centre, the interventions are limited but carefully focused. The narrow foyer is widened and the accessibility and appearance of the rooms are improved. Additionally the building was adapted, as much as possible, to be shared with the schools. In this way, the schools can enjoy the facilities of the renovated library and craft room.

Completed in 2005, the Prinsenhof is a metropolitan, multipurpose building located in het Beatrixkwartier, The Hague. Ten years after the completion the original tenants left, relocated or downsized. Owner Bouwinvest and property manager CBRE commissioned atelier PRO to completely transform one vacant office floor in Tower C in one season, within a specified budget. The aim of the transformation was to create a modern ‘floor model’ in order to show contemporary companies how this modern space can be used.
To make use of the spatial quality of the vacant rentable floors as best as possible, atelier PRO has adapted the first layout with the clearest logistics, the best orientation, and the most beautiful light. With the resources that the method of Activity Based Working provided, the space is divided into several working and meeting spaces.
Redevelopment WTC The Hague reorganisation of the plaza
The Hague has had its own World Trade Centre since June 2012 and a new designated function has been the motive for an architectural transformation. The public spaces in the WTC Plaza and Convention Centre are upgraded to the quality standards of an international WTC. That’s why the owner Bouwinvest consulted atelier PRO and Sens Real Estate. An important part of the assignment lied in the redesign of the existing property. We (re)developed a relatively young building that is in full use.

Edith Stein College Den Haag estate in the centre of The Hague Atelier PRO’s design of the Edith Stein College offers both a familiar and dynamic learning environment for students. The stately and compact high school building is being built at the end of the Louis Couperusplein in the inner city of The Hague. The site will accommodate space for sport, games, gardening, green areas, and outdoor education. Initial research revealed that situating the sports hall underground would result in the most compact construction volume. This enables the sports hall to be completely integrated with the new building and simultaneously frees up more ground space for outdoor activities. The roof of the sports hall then becomes a podium to stack the different school departments above. On each floor, these departments are connected with the most prominent space and new heart of the school: the assembly hall.

Metis Montessori Lyceum Oosterpark
renovation design for a Montessori school anno 2013
Open study square with new interior
Atelier PRO was proud to complete the renovations of the Metis Montessori Lyceum in 2013. Full of character, the former Hoogere Burgerschool (HBS) in Amsterdam Oost looks forward to a bright new future ahead. Located on the edge of Oosterpark, the robust building from 1904 appears brand new again from the inside, and majestic and stylish from the outside. It’s a place full of memories, where students will prepare for their upcoming journeys ahead. Internally, atelier PRO introduced an open learning hub to interrupt the rigid rhythm of the building’s traditional layout and classrooms. Now, corridors always view into the hub. Structural walls from several classrooms were transformed with arched openings to connect with the corridor and create one joined space with an interesting spatial dynamic. Students can work according to the Montessori principles doing individual or group work in a lounge, quiet space of meeting area.

New school 2014-2016 Due to an increasing number of pupils, the Montessori School Amsterdam needed more educational space. That is why atelier PRO created a school design for an extension that fully meets the criteria of contemporary school requirements. The new building fits seamlessly into the historic Oosterpark and at the same time the interior makes personalized learning possible.

Renovation Geuzenschip, Brielle characteristic elements were brought back in the primary school Two primary schools located in the centre of Brielle were experiencing a shortage of space: the public Meester Eeuwout school and the Geuzenschip Christian primary school, a municipal heritage-listed building from 1930. The schools are located right beside each other. To address this issue, atelier PRO designed a building that can be shared by both schools. By sharing facilities both schools optimise the use of the available space on the site.
The old window frames have been renovated, and a new color concept strengthens the relationship between private and public area
During the renovation of the school building dated from 1931 with 6 classrooms, the original identity has been restored. Lowered system ceilings and partition walls have been removed and characteristic elements have been restored, where possible, or reduced, in close consultation with the Monument Conservation Department. The recesses in the hallway have been restored and allow daylight in again. They are used as a wardrobe and extra study places. Much effort has been made to put installations out of sight.
In the old situation, the hallways were clogged with stuff and the recesses were used as storage place
An ‘invisible’ acoustic ceiling has been installed in the classrooms
The recesses in the hall have been restored, and now serve as a wardrobe and an extra workplace
The layout of the new building is kept as clear as possible. The extension of Geuzenschip school follows the plan of the existing school with the addition of a wing with a classroom. Shared functions such as the assembly hall and playroom are positioned between both schools. Connection between the existing school and the new building

herinrichting financiert zichzelf door meer efficiënt ruimtegebruik The basis of the design is formed by the culture change process of the municipality of Ede. To support this process, the offices of the current town hall, designed by architectural firm Broekbakema in 1977, will be redeveloped. This new interior supports and strengthens the following issues: Ede’s position as a ‘Green, Sound and Active’ municipality; the core values of the organization: Confidence, Responsibility and Transparency; and the theme ‘The New World of Work’. We have examined the existing building and the possibilities it offers. Ede’s town hall is an elongated building varying from 2 to 4 storeys high, and built up in 4 volumes which are interrupted by central stairwells. The routing through the existing building has been transferred from a central passage with rooms on both sides, to open spaces with the walking route alongside the facade: an asymmetric corridor creating differentiations in the area, and making it possible to have more tranquil working places at the opposite facade.

Interior Town hall Zeist a sustainable tailor made suit The various housing locations of the municipality of Zeist will be joined in order to concentrate the municipal housing. In this new working environment, people will work in a different way, namely according to the principles of The New World of Work. As part of this method, flexible workplaces are introduced. In addition, the public task will be focussed on the future, based on the vision ’The municipality has the answer’. A counter for the citizen. These developments not only have their consequences for the zoning of the building, the design and the furniture, but also for the culture of the municipality.

Canadian Embassy, The Hague diplomatieke transparantie The Canadian Embassy in The Hague has been substantially renovated and expanded. The existing building from 1955 is located in The Hague in the midst of historic construction. This neighborhood is characterized by 19th century white villas in the Palladian style and is spacious situated in the green with Horse Chestnuts planted around two main axes. The Canadian Embassy engages with the villas of Palladio in its architecture, but the style is more related to that of U.S. government buildings. On the street side the building is executed in natural stone, unlike the 19th century plastered neighboring buildings. The two-layered volume, coated with French limestone, rests upon a plinth of granite. The glass walkway shields the inner garden, creating a sheltered spot

De Meerpaal, Dronten een nieuw leven voor van Klingeren’s manifest De Meerpaal in Dronten is the built manifesto with which the architect Frank van Klingeren took up a stance in the 1960s against the overweening division into functions in the design practice of those days. He not only brought together widely diverse activities in a single building, but refrained from separating them there. In atelier PRO’s winning design, which opts for recycling instead of demolition and new-build, De Meerpaal survives as a monument of Dutch architecture from the second half of the 20th century, be it modified to suit the current urban context and geared to present-day use. In planning terms the complex and the current urban plaza are welded into a whole: the jutting awning makes the building part of the plaza while the plaza for its part penetrates the building with one of its elevations. The pay-off is a roofed urban plaza behind a glazed wall which can be slid open during fine weather. On the urban front the plaza is brought back into prominence by the new fly tower.
The starting point in the new situation was the integration of functions, but in a way that the functions do not get in each other’s way. Characteristic elements of Van Klingeren’s design are made visible again: the glass box, the roof supported by six columns and the oval volume of the former open theater
