Montfort College is a school where quality is paramount. The course of study has an international character. For example, the school is the only one in Rotterdam South that offers the course Chinese Language and Culture. In order to be able to continue to guarantee that kind of quality, a relocation was necessary. The previous building in which Monfort College was housed was severely outdated, which was why the school moved to a modern building across the street from the old building. It can hold up to 700 students.
Sprank was asked to participate in a contract for a spacious entrance, with the media library, the auditorium with a staff room and the music room all adjoining it. We felt that the auditorium had to give a real "wow effect”. The students should be able to be proud to be here at this fantastic school, so we placed a rather unusual object there that the students have to figure out themselves how to use.
We brought that feeling of pride back into the media library as well, a space that is clearly visible from the street and is therefore a nice eye-catcher for the school.
We opted for a neutral and calm basis, with honest materials. Blue is the colour of tranquillity, of cooling. Green brings energy and harmony. And white is the colour of life force. We applied the "rethink, reuse" concept to the staff room. For example, we sprayed an old chair with a new coating, giving it a look from the past, but with the resilience of today. A small nod to the old building across the street.
An interior to be proud of, that matches the high quality that this school offers.
