The Livry Gargan town, which is located in the north of Paris, decided to expand the Jaurès principal college to respond to the escalating number of pupils. The website is situated in between the 2 principal buildings of the college and at the edge of the plot

We have conceived our project as “open edge”, not as of “border building”. To guarantee this idea, 1st of all, we produced a garden by the long of Boundary. The project’s extension reveals a easy line along which a garden comes along the classrooms and the covered playground. This line clearly appears as a modern response compared to the current constructing.

The pupils come into the classrooms through a corridor with opal glass and once into these classrooms they find out the gorgeous view of the garden. The staging joists blackout curtain, the option of “sango kaku” trees show in the center of triptych windows make the school a understanding space opened to the external landscape.

Larch wood is omnipresent each outdoors and inside the classrooms. The warm atmosphere, the light, the natural and artificial lighting, the touch brought by this wood bring to the kids a comfort and nicely becoming feeling. At the border of the house the concrete wall brings the tree “into” the classrooms and enables the thoughts to wander towards the sky…

The interior and exterior of the building is developped as a line along the garden. In component the covered playground, the beams are turned upside on the roof and transform its underside into a smooth surface of bare wood with a minimum bearing point. At the very same time this underside of wood makes deep landscaping space.
