KABK’s innovative approach to the future

KABK Event

The 3rd of September not only marked the start of the academic year for the KABK, the newly constructed roof on its monumental building on the Prinsessegracht 4 was unveiled for use. Piet Grouls from architects van Mourik came up with a design for an entirely transparant roof constructed from steel and glass for the monumental building.

Following the improvement of the academy’s studios, this is the next step in continuing to provide high quality art education for future generations. By continually improving its education and facilities the KABK strives to be the most innovative academy in the country, alongside its position as the oldest.

'Architecten van Mourik' designed the new accomodation for the KABK at the end of the nineties. Two governmental monuments were renovated, extended and combined into a single location. The new roof construction was put together in a record time of seven months. It is constructed of steel and glass, and designed in such a way that it can be deconstructed in the future without damaging the monument. By applying a clever installation technique and by using movable partitions the interior can be flexibly put to use for different purposes, such as for educational classes, exhibitions by students and office spaces.

At the start of the academic year the department of Graphic Design and Photography will move into the new accommodation. Despite the glass roof students can experience a pleasant climate, thanks to the climate control system. The system also cools the floor below, solving a climate problem in the monumental building.

The KABK has plans to further improve the accommodation this academic year. If all goes according to plan, the renovations to the historical rear of the building (Bleijenburg 38) will be completed at the end of 2012. Also, the building at the Bleijenburg 34-36 (previously the Carl Denig store) and the former nightclub at the Bleijenburg 44 will be rebuilt in order that the various post-graduate students can work at their studies 24 hours a day on site.
