An environment that connects people and where you feel at home, that is the most important aspect  of the new Grotius building of the Faculty of Law of the Radboud University in Nijmegen. In a number of workshops Studio Groen+Schild  investigated with students, teachers and professors what the appearance of the interior of the new law faculty would be. What do they expect of the building? The outcome: respect for tradition, but focused on the future. In the interior it has been translated into many wooden elements and the color green but also many contemporary design.

Classical elements are given a modern twist. A good example are the specially designed bookcase facades of glass and wood for the office rooms of the academic staff.  The characteristic green of the famous lamps in ancient classical libraries can be found as accents in the entrance hall, the library, study rooms, and in the office environment. The furniture is surrounded by attractive rooms with materials like stone, wood, glass and leather.

Completion date 2014

Bright, light and transparent. These are the key concepts  of the new production hall with offices for RHIMA Netherlands, a company for innovative dishwashing. Ten years ago we designed  the interior of the showroom for this company  at the same location. Now we designed the exterior and interior for the new building.   A special wish of our client was the connection to the existing building. To achieve this we have designed a large canopy that makes a gesture to the existing showroom. We opted for pure materials such as glass, steel and aluminum. Long sightlines and daylight in all areas, including the storage, creating a pleasant atmosphere for all employees.

Interieur kantoor GGD Noord- en Oost Gelderland Warnsveld door Studio Groen+Schild

'Een gezond houvast.' Dit thema van de GGD Noord- en Oost Gelderland was ons vertrekpunt voor het ontwerp van het kantoor in Warnsveld. Het oude gemeentehuis is gerenoveerd en geschikt gemaakt voor activiteitgerelateerd werken. Het interieur is duurzaam en gezond. Nieuwe installaties, openheid en lange zichtlijn zorgen voor een prettig binnenklimaat en comfortabele werkplekken. Het groen van buiten hebben we naar binnen gehaald. Vertaald in kleuren en materialen en soms letterlijk zoals in de ruime entreehal. Hier staan drie grote bomen, de ruimte wordt een kas waarin mensen elkaar ontmoeten. Tijdens een gesprek met één van de medewerkers vertelde ze over haar nieuwe werkplek: “Ik voel me weer serieus genomen. We waren een beetje weggestopt, maar ik sta nu weer in the picture.”

Residence Okkenbroek

'Exceptional barn residence'

Okkenbroek

/

205 m²

Completion date 2013

Create a fine residential premises from the barn on our property. The barn was demolished because of its rundown condition. We designed a new residence on the same location and in the same spirit of the former barn, retaining its exterior features: an exceptional form composed of wood. The living room flows out onto a raised terrace seamlessly linking inside to outside. Windows were placed in such a way to create lines of sight throughout the house. The materials were simple and consistently applied, concrete, wood and glass. The result is a bright residential property with plenty of space and optimum contact with the surrounding countryside.

Dimence Wetserdok Almelo door Studio Groen+Schild

"Design a liveable building which contributes to the wellbeing of the people and their recovery." That was the question of Dimence for building Westerdok. A mental health institution in which both ambulatory care and clinical care is provided. We have translated the question into a design, in which variation in perception is of spaces with as many natural materials and bright colors: hospitable, friendly and modern. Especially for the interior more than 100 illustrations are developed that show what lives in the building. They tell the story of the human psyche and make the building personally.
