From the architect. As part of the redevelopment around the primary school Neiwiss in Rodange, the municipality decided to build a covered area protected from the rain.

The pavilion is open on the schoolyard to participate in the playground. On the other side, the structure is closed on public roads. This situation "beside" and the surrounding landscape have prompted cuts in the wall to frame views, highlight. In that way, the landscape participates at the breaks for students and teachers.

The structure is made of 8 cross laminated timber panels 20cm thick, free-standing, prefabricated in workshop and then fitted on site. The outer surface of the roof and the side wall are covered continuously by a PVC sealing, glued on the wood. The cuts in the wall are filled with fixed colored safety glass. The inner surface of wooden panels is left visible, just covered with a protective varnish.
