Windwijzer Kalken
We will start work on the brand-new 'De Windwijzer' nursery and primary school in Kalken in 2024.
The project includes a sustainable, beautiful new building that will beautifully complement the authentic, already restored schoolhouse.

The project comprises several phases:
PHASE 1: The demolition of the existing and container classrooms, in function of the new building.
PHASE 2: New building
The main entrance will be relocated at the level of a rear car park. This will benefit traffic conditions and safety at the site.
The new building is a compact building of only two storeys in order to fit discretely into the residential environment.
The classrooms are oriented north(east) so that light and heat are cleverly used.
Agate grey was chosen for the brickwork, a nice contrast with the red brick of the restored schoolhouse.

ABETEC is responsible for architecture, stability, techniques, infrastructure and EPB.

Proud of this innovative multidisciplinary project in collaboration with the Municipality of Kalken/Laarne.
