The project School Campus Peer is part of the Belgium “Schools of Tomorrow”, a major operation upgrading and renewing more then 200 schools in the whole country.  The winning plan has a size of approximately 18,000 m2 and includes the construction of a secondary school, a primary school, a sports complex and a boarding school. The campus is located in the immediate vicinity of the centre of Peer. The green central area is open to the public, making the campus of benefit to the town of Peer.

The project is designed as a landscaped urban ensemble, with the sports fields, playgrounds and a large public park as an integral part of the campus design. The set up of the various buildings, the playgrounds and the outdoor spaces ensures a diverse play and learning landscape, where a range of activities is possible. The landscape design was made in co-operation with landscape designers Bureau B+B.

The design of the buildings is flexible in design, with common areas for meetings, learning centres and various forms of education. The special rooms in the buildings are designed as expressive accents, and anchor the building to the surrounding environment. An important component is the clear zoning of the buildings, through which multiple use is possible and the campus is alive during the day as well as in the evening. Through this the campus is anchored in the social and spatial structure of Peer.
