Located on the urban periphery of Granville, this musical school sits in a landscape that is both rural and urban. In this setting, the school brings together many of music schools that were scattered across several municipalities. Hidden by the terrain, the building borrows from the surrounding rural farms, barns, and small factories and translates them into a contemporary language. The details are simple and clean with a hint of rustication ie. the pre-patina copper green.

The building walks the line between being strong contemporary contrast to its surroundings and one that absolutely blends into the landscape. In this way you are simultaneously caught off guard and put at ease.

The architects from K-architectures say, “In a general way our works try to restore to architecture its narrative power. Each design corresponds to a story based on the encounter with a place, a site and a region. Our architecture is composed of stories and materials taken from or invented on site.”
