Text description provided by the architects. The boarding school for deaf youngsters is a place of living for young girls and boys suffering from this disability.

This reflexion has visible achievements on the exterior of the several buildings, through the use of bamboos and perforated metal. The both of them are references to the vegetal environment, which is the one of the parc where lies the national institute for deaf youngsters.
