Text description provided by the architects. Old school refurbishment for the education services
The primary school of Treverien is in the center of the little town (located in Brittany, west of france), in an old granit building.
This typical building of the Brittany region is unfortunately far too small with the expansion of the town.
Thus, few years ago, an annex was built against the original building and two prefabricated buildings were set into the playground to gain more classrooms.
The project takes advantage of the qualities of the site to link the existing and new built elements. The old granit building create an interesting front built, but the successive extensions compromise the readability of the school.
Thus, the new project aims to identify the existing building as a new school, and create an extension that willl make a link between landscape and the old refurbished building.
