From the architect. The infirmary is located inside the playground of the highschool Diderot d’Alembert in Aubervilliers, in the suburbs of Paris. The construction is separated in two, by both its fonctions and acces. On one side you can get to the infirmary and the toilets, on the other to the office.

The separation also appears in the colors used on each side of the building, green and red. The inside light comes through the facades by pixalated openings. A gradient color links both of the side visualy.

banch has been added on the facade folowing the smooth angles. Regarding the intimacy required by this kind of programm, we’ve choosen to get the natural light form a skydome.
