Situated on a triangular site as part of the large “Rive de Seine” urban project in Boulogne-Billancourt, the new school complex fits into a contrasting urban context and faces a large public plaza that allows access to both schools while creating a link to the secondary school across the street. Navigating a transition between urban fabrics, the building draws a crenulated skyline which develops different profiles the length of the streets it borders. This composite form is clad with steel panels to produce a homogenous facade, whose finely ribbed surface is animated by metallic reflections whose nuances of colour create a patchwork effect. In contrast, the glazed ground floor addresses the scale of the street, all while preserving the privacy of the students within. The general organization of the school defines a compact building, with highly visible entries and clear circulation. The kindergarten benefits from a ground floor patio while the elementary school enjoys an L shaped terrace, with both possessing an ideal southern orientation while maintaining a level of protection from the surrounding neighbourhood. The prominent gymnasium occupying the western corner acts as an urban marker accessible from both the school and the public space. The building is situated on former Renault cars factories. Its aesthetic identity refers to the shift from the former industrial economy of the site to the digital era, as the pedagogic program of the school has been specifically defined around the introduction of connected technologies.
