Jean-Moulin high school

Originally, an indoor schoolyard is at the heart of all the high school functions. This schoolyard is a symbolic representation of school buildings throughout time.   The project unfolds around this central space which in itself creates a particular enclosed space integrating all the elements of the program, in a dual perspective between the single indoor courtyard and the outdoor town made of plurality and undefined spaces. The general volume, a simple hollowed out wooden monolith, takes advantage of the leveling of the plot to take off from the ground and open a yard on the street. The Jean Moulin High School has been the first HEQ-certified high school in Ile-de-France.   Our website More
