Hogeschool Dronten is a college focusing on education, research and the application of agricultural knowledge. Its new premises are encased in a glass structure with a height of just over 16 metres: the tallest glass casing in Europe. Definitely worthy of the name ‘BrightBox’!
Hogeschool Dronten wanted its college building to have a unique look befitting its agricultural character. And it was to incorporate a smart, open area suitable for large events, to compensate for the lack of such a venue in the city centre of Dronten.
We decided not to make use of traditional curtain walls and roof systems for the new build of this large-scale daylight structure. Instead, we introduced an entirely new daylight solution for utility facilities inspired by greenhouses: our BrightBox.
We realised our solution in a short space of time and for the same budget as a traditional college building. The enormous glass structure is a highly distinctive eyecatcher in the world of education. Many people still visit Hogeschool Dronten to find out precisely how this architectural wonder and the technology behind it work.
