From the Architect
The construction of Saxion University Deventer not only solves the problem of a lack of space, but has also given the place a feeling of identity, which it had previously lacked.
The existing building has been made 5 stories higher whilst the new building has been constructed at the existing entrance, thereby forming the heart of the school. Sustainability was an important focus in this design. For example the computer floor works as a large ventilation duct incorporating all of the data installations, as well as the use of concrete core activation for heating and cooling.
