St Theresa School, Bilthoven, Holland, 2009
Combined primary school, child daycare and community centre located in the Biltse woods.
The curving walls of the school have been clad in Siberian Larch, treated with Tanalith E preservative with a water repellent additive, that will not only ensures a long service life for the timbers but will also help maintain its dimensional stability and attractive appearance.
To complement the lightly wooded landscape in which it is located, the rounded shapes of the building depict three logs with the treated cladding representing the bark.
Timbers treated by Foreco Dalfsen.
