The school complex Buffon is the rehabilitation and extension of existing school equipment, dating from the seventies and combining nursery and elementary schools, respecting German label Passivhaus. 


The project redefined the new unit around a sweet and sensitive materiality favoring the use of wood and prefabrication. The project balances between opening towards the popular district around and Child Protection within the school. Spaces are requalified to offer a generous relationship outside.
