Construction of the school was carried out in 2 phases:

  • Phase 1: construction of a new nursery and primary school with gymnasium.
  • Phase 2: construction of a secondary school with underground bicycle parking and sports hall.

  • The elaboration of the façade brickwork: in some areas, bricks with protruding joints were placed, elsewhere 2 different joint depths were used.
  • the positioning of the external joinery in the façade plane where the glazing extends over the aluminium joinery and the profiles are therefore not visible.
  • the sports hall was built on top of the upper two floors on top of the classrooms, requiring additional attention for acoustics.

In terms of concept and use, the building is energy-efficient and has a covered area. In the context of an open school, passers-by must have a view of the inside of the school from the public area.

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.
