Immac ² Mixed Use Job/ Urban Platform.
Text description offered by the designers. This master strategy is the result of an urbanistic and financial expediency research study that seeks to provide a sustainable and quality solution to this abandoned school website, taking into account its historic architectural value.
The research study makes up, to name a few things, a feasibility research study per constructed component; the definition of the elements to be razed, refurbished or constructed; the definition of the allocation of the different components; the study of various scenarios by considering heritage elements as well as sustainability and monetary expediency.

The objective likewise consists of the advancement of the selected circumstance: meaning of the surface areas and estimate of the building and construction, restoration and restoration costs; reduction of the technical risks (by estimating demolition expenses, asbestos removal, soil tests, archaeology, etc.); appraisal of the sales price.
The assignment was then prolonged as an architectural mission. In overall, eight structures were remodelled and repurposed or built. Different structures were likewise taken down in order to improve the historical structures, totally free up the site and produce a public passage through it.
The old cloister was remodelled into a wide range of social services and (co-working) workplace areas. The attic of this volume was enhanced thanks to the insertion of completely independent volumes (‘ boxes in the box’), leaving the noted structure untouched. The volume of the chapel was repurposed as a local social restaurant available to the public.
At the centre of the site lies the ‘house of the dukes’, Hertogenhuis. It is home to the earliest cellar in Tienen(dating from the 13 th century) in addition to an ‘Open School’ for grownups, which brings life to the site at nights. The Art Deco structure was transformed into a crèche on the ground floor and a ‘Kind & Gezin’ workplace on the first floor. From a volumetric point of view, the new aspects fit in perfectly with the existing structures. In terms of architecture, the choice was made to develop a clear juxtaposition between old and brand-new. The brand-new buildings are defined by zinc cladding, glass façades and black aluminium joinery.
The goal of the project is also to develop a large range of habitats covering various typologies (both remodellings and new building and constructions) while fitting into the existing context in terms of products and dimensions. So the previous school wing is being renovated into ten single-family real estate systems. Along the Ooievaarstraat, nine single-family homes and 10 apartments are planned in two different volumes, each developed totally with a wood frame. This structure approach makes it possible to have low-impact foundations.
Specific attention has been paid to the outside design. The whole website has been opened up again to the outside. Mineral and vegetal areas co-exist in consistency and are structured by footpaths that invite passers-by and cyclists to utilize the site as a public passage.
