Liseo Boneriano, School community Bonaire

An elegant


new ensemble

Liseo Boneriano, School community Bonaire

The Liseo Boneriano is a highschool on the Caribbean island of Bonaire. Part of the school is now situated in a building on Kaya Amsterdam in Bonaire. The number of students has increased to such an extent that lack of sufficient educational space became a serious issue. The team of atelier PRO architects and Jacobs Architects created a design to extend the schoolbuilding in such a way that both junior and senior pupils have room to attend class at this location.

This redevelopment will appear as one elegant new ensemble with great attention to the outdoor space. The outdoor space will feature as the public domain, enabling students and teachers to meet in a relaxed manner.

These new functional education facilities offer Bonaire an important and attractive educational setting that focuses on interaction.
