The project satisfies three requests of the municipality: to adjust the size of the school to the current local schooling needs, to redefine the nature of the relation to the existing family center and to rejuvenate the area with a contemporary building.
Built on a single level, the building is organized around a central corridor with niches recessed to accommodate benches and create various informal spaces for children.
