The old municipal school of Nederzwalm is being converted into 3 single-family homes and an office building, something that alderman of heritage Peter Van Den Haute (N-VA) is very happy about: “In any case, the plans of the architectural office look beautiful. It is a good example of how your heritage can be perfectly reinterpreted to meet all contemporary needs, the perfect mix, in other words. The entire site is being sustainably renovated, so that the ecological footprint is minimal.
The reconversion is the last chapter in the eventful story of this small school that is so decisive for the townscape of Nederzwalm. The previous administration wanted to demolish it and replace it with a parking lot. From N-VA Zwalm we have always resisted this very hard and thanks to Louis Ide and then Prime Minister Geert Bourgeois, the building was classified at the last minute. After the change of power, we as board went looking for a new owner who could give our heritage a beautiful and meaningful future and we succeeded. “
