Old stone walls and imposing Parisian apartment building near this depth, irregular lot, as the setting for this jewel-like elementary school. Fun, by the place, serpentine shape of the building creates a dense series of courses and classrooms, so that no corner unused. The hardware designer chooses bright colors, fun shapes allows users a lasting impression and create an identity for the school with its unique architecture. The reason bamboo shamelessly mimics the true landscaping throughout the project: vegetalised party walls, grassy hill in the first floor and the educational garden on the third. The latter space allows two homes (one for the caretaker and one for the head teacher) to be brought back from the street facade, new to an urban environment over three floors above the street.
