Pius X School, Antwerp
Dirk Somers, Wim Boesten, Sidse Hald, Eline Aerts
A school campus in the south of Antwerp. Along the boulevard a school extension is planned.
The existing situation: the outdoor space as a leftover.
The proposed scheme: outdoor spaces as half open rooms.
The new footprint: the building steps back from the building linein the middle.
An impression from the boulevard: the setback marks the entrance. Some old trees can be kept.
