The school, overlaid with two levels of parking (55 spaces reserved for school and 60 for the residence), offers facades that affirm their identity on different orientations. The facade, randomly double laced in a vertical rhythm, gives a depth and lightness to the whole process while allowing the necessary sun protection to the various rooms. Facades create a graphic effect sustained by projected shadows and a colored highlighting.
