sintlucas taken into use

The cepezed-designed new branch of the SintLucas College in Eindhoven was taken into use at the start of the new school year yesterday. The vocational college for creative-technological and entrepreneurial studies is now housed in a splendid complex of existing and new construction with ample space, daylight and facilities. It comprises the remaining parts of the former Philips Natlab on Strijp-S combined with new additions that include the great central atrium as well as high-rise with instruction rooms, practice rooms and a sports hall. The official opening will be in October. For the first reactions to the new building, also see this report on the website of Studio 040
