Ecole Communale Roi Albert

Jemappes, Belgium

This primary school ‘Ecole Communale Roi Albert’ was abandoned in 2008, about 80 children were send to other schools in town. The school was built in 1937 and named after King Albert of Belgium. The school is built in an L-shape and has a imposing facade.


The company FK Immo invested more than 3 million euros to transform the old ‘Ecole Communale Roi Albert’ into 35 apartments. Every classroom is turned into an apartment with 3.6m high, loft-style windows. The large stairwells of the school have remained identical. The former playground becomes a large car park.
