Appreciations towards Muoto for providing the following description:


Situated on a triangular site as part of the large “Rive de Seine” urban project in Boulogne-Billancourt, the new school group fits into a contrasting urban context and faces a large public plaza that allows access to both schools while creating a link to the secondary school across the street.

The building is situated on former Renault cars factories. Its aesthetic identity refers to the shift from the former industrial economy of the site to the digital era, as the pedagogic program of the school has been specifically defined around the introduction of connected technologies.

横观项目与周围城市肌理的过渡, 建筑师在沿街立面上为其绘制了一条曲折的轮廓线,为街道带来了不同新鲜元素。

Navigating a transition between urban fabrics, the building draws a crenelated skyline which develops different profiles the length of the streets it borders.

The general organization of the school defines a compact building, with highly visible entries and clear circulation.

This composite form is clad with steel panels to produce a homogenous facade, whose finely ribbed surface is animated by metallic reflections whose nuances of color create an engaging patchwork effect.

In contrast, the glazed ground floor addresses the scale of the street, all while preserving the privacy of the students within.

The kindergarten benefits from a ground floor patio while the elementary school enjoys an L shaped terrace, with both possessing an ideal southern orientation while maintaining a level of protection from the surrounding neighborhood.

The prominent gymnasium occupying the western corner acts as an urban marker accessible from both the school and the public space.
