School, gym, social center - Vernay
In this project, the programs of the school, the gym and the social center are integrated in one building. The volume, the interior's distribution and a particular dialogue with the context guarantee the autonomy of different functions. At the same time, the domestic landscape and visual relationships allow a direct communication between the different environments. The height difference between the gym and the subsidiary halls (cloakrooms, toilets, equipment rooms) is absorbed by the implementation of the school's premises on the second floor. Through a partial modeling of the topography, the gymnasium service areas remain in the basement, while the classes are on one floor with the playground, facing south.
