From the architect. The project takes into account the notions of flexibility, of environmental awareness, of simplicity of use, of functionality, of coherence that enable the programmatic entities to be linked together around exterior spaces that are re-dimensioned and re-planned.

The scale of the place was found thanks to the location of buildings with appropriated dimension. The care of spaces is thought as for an urban entity, like a microcosm offering a diversity of landscapes. The new buildings take place in the heart of the gardens: gardens with plants for the boarding school, but also "urban garden" and mineral one for the teaching places. The ambition of this project is to offer a coherence set in a specific environment.
