College 'Helicon' at Den Bosch
About 1000 students come to this building to follow their vocational training in courses such as agriculture, green, flower, hand & design, wellness & lifestyle, etc. Due to the types of education offered at the school, a green look was wanted.

The durable Brazilian species Louro Itauba was chosen for the cladding. This species ages beautifully, and by using horizontal boards in vertical rows, the building has received a utilitarian look.

Mandioqueira is used for boardwalks and stairs has been grated and provided with anti-skid material, to allow the hundreds of students that pass over this boardwalk each day to cross safely, also in bad weather.
