Designing a new look for a primary school

Revitalizing a Zonnegroen Primary School Through Design

Zoutleeuw, Belgium

The school Zonnegroen in Zoutleeuw Belgium has been selected by ‘Schools of Tomorrow’. The old school was in a bad situation in case of maintenance, the spatial bottlenecks and the functional unsuitability of the temporary pavilions. They will be able to use their new school building around 2016. CroonenBuro5 has designed the building.

The building is designed together with the surrounding area, which means it was an integral designing process. The typology of the school fits into its surrounding buildings, so the school becomes part of the neighbourhood in a practical and symbolic way.
