MFA De Zonneboom, Netherlands

by Drost + van Veen Architecture
2011
 
 
The new community center in Oosseld, Doetinchem houses a large number of functions, including housing, shopping, health care, learning and meeting. Central to the plan, to a large square, the new multifunctional accommodation The Solar Tree which Drost + van Veen architects were asked to make a design. The Solar Tree consists of two primary schools, a petit café, several multipurpose rooms, a gymnasium and space for some institutions. The various functions are brought together under a parasol pronounced that refers to the typical Oosseldse caps.
 
The exterior is covered with tens of thousands of ceramic slates in five different colors. Dark green tiles form a pattern of leaves, and act like a mosaic or pixels to form several images on the building facade.
