Colormat Classic, Amstelveen Netherlands

The school building accommodates pupils from two primary schools and also provides room for a music and dance school and after-school care. One striking element in the project is the colourful façade. The ‘joints’ between the panel material are filled with bright colours. Also, some of the aluminium window frames and casements feature the same accent colour, as colours that are also found inside the building. By giving different parts of the building their own colour - purple, green, orange and yellow - the different functions of the building stand out, while using one common façade material for the whole school emphasises the unity of the building.

This reference has Colormat Classic as its main product

The façade material consists of Colormat Classic fibre cement panels (colour: Champagne H412) from SVK which are glued horizontally in strips of various lengths to the façade construction. This choice was down to the fact that these panels look lively and demonstrate a sense of movement.
