Comfort temperature in the classrooms

This school building is characterized by its openness and transparency while maintaining the small scale within its various departments. It includes an advanced ventilation system based on the "Frisse Scholen" concept, developed by TNO, for thermal comfort and an energy efficient lighting system with daylight dimming control.

The patented ventilation concept assures circulation of fresh air through vents in the ceiling, for which the space above the ceiling is used as an air distribution system. The combination between consistent thermal comfort and stimulating lighting conditions improves the indoor environment in the classrooms significantly, assuring the welfare of the children and the working conditions for teachers.
