The elementary school "De Magneet" is part of the urban ensemble schoolcampus Peer. The school is organised around two enclosed playgrounds, ensuring a cosy and protected area for the children. The school has been designed for 500 pupils varying from 2 to 12 years old. 

A diverse learning landscape ensures that a variety of activities can take place in the building: learning, playing, sporting and creative activities. 

The setup of the building ensures that every child, has a surrounding that corresponds with his age: challenging, secure and inspiring. 

The materialisation is simple and high quality: with natural stone, oakwood and large windowframes.
