Public School “De Knotwilg”, Amsterdam

After the final choice for the terracotta tile was determined by De Knotwilg Public Primary School in Amsterdam in 2020, preparations for installation of the tiles was finally started in April of this year.

Commissioned by the Zonova Foundation and Municipal Real Estate Amsterdam, Architect Urban Echoes designed an all-sided building with an atrium and roof garden. Façade cladding and the walkway around the building were kept in the same color scheme in order to visually make the three educational disciplines it houses to one uniform building.

For the walkway of this public school ‘De Knotwilg’, machine-produced terracotta (Arrotato da Crudo) was chosen.
