The ground. The material. The sky. Our architectural approach is to tell this story through our project. The geometrical figure that we sketch is a transition - or a distinction - between natural ground and built ground, between existing and future urban forms. The project's primary ambition is to optimise the urban situation by creating a link between Constellations commercial district (to the north) and Garrigues district (to the south). In resonance with this heterogeneous context, our project proposes a serene and structuring architecture that provides the site with a new dynamic while delicately integrating itself into the landscape.
Our project is expressed by means of a simple figure, formed by the superposition of two layers that flee to the woods on ground level, and that ties out, on upper floor, the buildings structure like an open room in the landscape. Functional optimisation is the project's second ambition. Our proposal rigorously obeys the functional logic required by the programme. It is organised around a system of two courtyards facing the woods, delimited by three parallel volumes which house common areas on ground level, with three volumes on the first floor which house all teaching premises.
