Selected for transformation school Antwerp (B)

12.04.2014

Grosfeld van der Velde Architects is selected with the Antwerp office Boonen Michielsens to transformate a boarding school in Antwerp to an education building. Central in the vision is the observation that the existing building not only has to be renovated, but as well has to be reanimated. Therefore, the plinth is fundamentally widened, in order to give the building with this impulse a fresh and inviting appearance, as well as a spatially heart. The commissioner is GO!. The building has two users: the CVO with adults education and the CLB, which does medical research and students coaching. 25 class rooms will be realized for adults education, and besides that an open study room and restaurant, administrative rooms, three medical research ciruits and many conference rooms.
