AMSB 7111278 CHOICE 2942

The Antwerp OCMW has given its historic site Boogkeers at Mechelseplein and Lange Gasthuisstraat on a long lease to the Antwerp Management School.

  • The historic city villa that is on the architectural heritage inventory at Lange Gasthuisstraat 32 will be restored.
  • The inner area of the site will become more open and green.
  • The less valuable buildings on Mechelseplein will make way for a new building with underground parking.

The buildings will form a set of linked separate entities. The new section will be an airy whole in which the rhythm of the adjoining building to be restored will be continued.

The new campus will stand for a sustainable, socially responsible building while respecting its historical value.

A study on daylighting and summer comfort in the classrooms and the office led to the choice in the classrooms for double-glazed windows with high light transmission and interior sun blinds. For the offices, external solar shading and cooling is provided.

A K-level of K30 and an E-level of E45 were determined

As executive architects, we help the designing architects with all construction technical and financial issues, so that they can fully focus on the design.

We also monitor the implementation and ensure that the objectives and plan are always crystal clear for all partners, so that together we can realise our dreams.
