Villa Vonk community school
Location: Rotterdam, Hoogvliet
Architect: Venhoeven CVS architecture+urbanism
Commissioned by: Woonbron Projectontwikkelaars
Contractor: Waal Bouw
Product: glazed and transfer tiles
Venhoeven CVS asked Royal Tichelaar Makkum to supply tiles in special, rich glazes: some with even colours and some with screen-printed multicoloured, two-dimensional decorations. The tiles designed by the architect are a major component of the community school in Hoogvliet and are consistent with the project's conceptual starting points, in which an open, welcoming atmosphere for all schoolchildren was of paramount importance. The school complex and the entrance in particular, partly as a result of the rich tiling, looks like a luxury villa: something that was an important basic principle for the architect.
