Chartier Dalix Architectes recently won a competition for a primary school and student residence located in Ivry, Framce, just outside of Paris. The school is organized in the form of a terraced landscape welcoming successive vegetation and its general implantation, facing south, offers maximum sunlight to the playgrounds, corridors, and classrooms that take full advantage of this landscape in height. More images and architects’ description after the break.
The plan offers flexibility of multiple orientations, as well as views on the playground and heart block. The student housing is very compact (9 stories) and arranged so as not to shade on the playground. Also all the units are oriented east and west and extended by a small outdoor space decorated with perforated metal panels, fixed and sliding.
