Text description provided by the architects. The school at Le Bourget is built accordingly to the image of its changing environment. An area facing the landscape of the emerging Grand Paris, connected to the city by green “corridors”, an area brought near the city thanks to its nearby train station.

The school is designed based on a structure entirely made out of timber, digitized and optimized, prefabricated in a workshop-factory and mounted in a few months by two craftsmen.

This structure, including structural frames every 1.50 m, is covered with a green roof for water retention and thermal mass. Elevations of the structure are cladded with glass and aluminium panels aligned on the 1.50 m frame to frame distance. Therefore, the aluminium envelope is only 4 mm thick and the insulation takes place in the thickness of the structure.

Kindergarten classrooms are located on the ground floor and have access from the schoolyard. The elementary school is located upstairs. The large oriel window provides heat input during winter and a view of surrounding landscapes.
