Passive project: schools, sport hall and residences
About
The ‘Site Van Oost’ project takes part of a larger sustainable development plan for the commune of Schaerbeek (Brussels), aiming to revalue its rich 19th-century architectural heritage and urban patrimony and to revitalise the municipality. For the ‘Van Oost’ site, an ambitious urban project was set up that had to equip the merely residential quarter with extended public services and expand the housing supply. The project ‘Site Van Oost’ won the competition that was launched for the conception of a mixed-use development with two schools buildings, each containing a kindergarten en a primary school, a sport hall and 11 apartments. A particular attention has been paid to the project’s integration within the neighbouring built environment, the two adjacent streets being characterised by traditional Brussels terraced houses. By the transformation of the building block’s interior to a public space and the partial conservation of the streets’ architectural patrimony, our project wants to affirm the new identity where the commune is driven to, all in respect for a place that is anchored in collective memory.
At the interior of the building block, the schools’ facades are resolutely dynamic and marked by a large variety of materials, textures and fresh colours, offering a pleasant and ludic environment for the children. At the same time, all the new buildings respond to the criteria of passive energetic performance.
