The jury praises the concept vision deposited by Bekkering Adams architects. 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, indoor playgrounds, outdoor spaces ensures a diverse play and learning landscape, where a range of activities possible. The landscape design was made in co-operation with landscape designers Bureau B B.

The jury is also enthusiastic about the design of the buildings, which are flexible in design, with common areas for meetings, learning centers 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 will be alive during the day as well as in the evening. Through this the campus is anchored in the social and spatial structure of Peer.

The competition is part of the procurement process “Schools of Tomorrow”.
For this competition Bekkering Adams architects worked with a Flemish / Dutch team of advisors: Bureau Bouwtechniek from Antwerp, ABT Antwerp, Ingenium from Bruges, Daidalos / Peutz from Louvain and the Office for landscaping B B in Amsterdam for the design of the public space.

The client of the project is the overall organization of “Schools of Tomorrow”, in cooperation with the city of Peer. The planning of the project is vigorously, with the start of the first studies in 2012 and the expected delivery of the first buildings in 2015.
