Text description provided by the architects. Olivier-Métra school is set on a plot surrounded by 1930s red brick HBM (habitations à bon marché / social housing) and small houses with gardens. The area is dominated by recent major housing projects located on Belleville Hill. The aim of the project is to create a building that stands out of the heterogeneous architectural fabric.

Seeking space and light, the school sets into the urban fabric. The free volumes, federated by the use of a sole material, pre-weathered zinc, spring out and create liaisons and the vegetation penetrates into the breach. The southern light slips into the playground, punctuated by a colored floor that continues into the classrooms. Facing east, the classrooms enjoy morning sun.
