This is a 12,000 sq. m. rehabilitation and extension project under a DBFM (Design Build Finance and Maintain) contract implemented by les Entreprises Louis de Waele. The five storey H-shaped building accommodates kindergarten, primary and secondary school pupils. It is equipped with classrooms, multipurpose spaces, refectories and a new 1,000+ sq. m. sports hall.

The façade of the Koekelberg school features a very light and highly insulated wooden structure and is covered with fibre cement panels. Multicoloured blinds have been designed to respond to a meteorological sensor, while simplicity characterises the interior decoration with rough concrete, no suspended ceiling, concrete columns, panelling and furniture made of multilayer larch plywood.
