PROJECT

15.065 | Primary school and nursery Melopee

The requested program for the building, being a combination of a primary school (240 pupils), after-school care centre, a nursery, and sport facilities for the school and its neighbourhood, is diverse and extensive. In order to combine the variety of the functions, with its outside-space needs on a relatively small site, Xaveer De Geyter Architects assembles all indoor functions into one compact volume of 40 by 31m. The remaining, equally large area, is used to stack different playgrounds and sports fields. Designed as steel portal frames with composite steel-concrete floors, this slender structure offers views to the square, the street, the quay, and the park.
