Project description: The project is set in a dense urban context. The school is integrated by its simple volumetry, its functions legibility, and its access treatment. It is set up in an L-shape to create an optimal free surface on the ground.
It takes the form of two wooden quadrilaterals set on a limestone base that is largely glazed on the courtyard side and closed at the back, on the public space side.
The brightly lit first floor forms a "center of life." Natural light plays a significant role in the project, guiding the children through the school.
The fixed wooden furniture is made to measure, giving the project coherence to the wood's soft and light shades present in the superstructure and giving the project an ecological interest.
Finally, the stone base protects the building. Its confrontation with the wood creates a harmonious color temperature.
