Text description provided by the architects. The metal roof pans adapt the same aesthetic as the blocks by introducing variations and rhythms in the folds of the roof elements to create coloured modulations on the facades. The undulating folded metal roof protects the patios from risks of overheating in summer and creates a microclimate in the terraced gardens.

The folded roof includes both glazed surfaces and metal panels. The materiality of the interior is composed of architectural concrete and timber cladding. Large windows facing each other create a dual orientation and open towards the landscape.

The gymnasium was designed like an independant block following on from education blocks.
