Lieven Dejaeghere turn old school building into housing complex

theface_izegem

A former school that has been standing abandoned since its cease of operation in 2007, was turned into a housing complex by Lieven Dejaeghere in Belgian town Izegem. In the name of heritage preservation, the local architecture studio tried to utilise as much as the original structure as possible. Only minimal intervention was made to the facade and the layout as well, as a form of tribute to the original function of the building.

Each of the 17 apartments inside occupies space that was originally part of a classroom. The flats are identically planned, with an en-suite bedroom, a lounge and dining area, a kitchen, and storage space. The functions are divided by glass panels that let natural light flow through space. Texturing provides privacy where needed, while sliding doors keep the walls smooth and uniform.

The building itself was also rather restored than altered: the supporting walls, door openings, and roofs were kept intact. A newly built extension, housing 5 two-bedroom apartments, is also in harmony with the old parts, featuring red brick walls and white framed openings. As reminiscent of the communal nature of schools, the courtyard  was tuned into a community space, where inhabitants can meet and relax.
