‘CBS De Haven’ is an elementary school and daycare center located in the city of Doetinchem, the Netherlands. The school’s main ambition is to offer a diverse learning environment using multiple teaching methods. This ambition is translated into a welcoming and hospitable building design. The volume resembles the typical and recognizable shape of a house with a pitch roof, making the school feel ‘like home’ to the children.
