From the architect. The Livry Gargan town, which is located in the north of Paris, decided to expand the Jaurès primary school to respond to the increasing number of pupils. The site is situated between the two main buildings of the school and at the edge of the plot.
The project’s extension reveals a simple line along which a garden comes along the classrooms and the covered playground. This line clearly appears as a contemporary response compared to the existing building.
The pupils come into the classrooms through a corridor with opal glass and once into these classrooms they discover the beautiful view of the garden. The staging joists blackout curtain, the choice of “sango kaku” trees display in the center of triptych windows make the school a learning space opened to the external landscape.
