a protected living space
At the heart of a high-density district, the Beaulieu site looks like a large void, three sides of which are bordered by housing units between R + 3 and R + 4, and the fourth by a green strip.
Setting up a school program for children aged 11 to 15 in the vastness of this plot first consisted in resizing a living space.
Like a protective enclosure opening onto abundant vegetation, the building is then located in line with the non-aedificandi zone and opens onto the public garden. The entrance is naturally made at the junction of rue Tamaarouft and boulevard de Bordeaux, a large square that reflects the image of an open but protective college.
the entrance behind
the openworked awning
The wooden openworked awning gives a glimpse of the activity of the entrance hall. Upon reaching the ground, it creates a screen and secures the high-school entrance. In addition, the buildings are located more than 5m a 2.70 meter high wall that surrounds it, overhung by an anti-crossing system.
Only the entrance, the reception of deliveries and the technical rooms energize the long linear wall which deforms like a ribbon made of foldings and expected extrusions.
The two- and three-story monolithic bodies overlooking the ground floor are the result of a rational programmatic reading. To adapt the scale of the building to the young children who will attend the site, the heights of the buildings are lowered by deconstructing the volumes.
The general education buildings are crenellated up to R + 2 and the west building R + 3. Thus, some special education rooms have terraces. Mixing openings and exterior extensions, this cut-out architecture reduces the massiveness of the building and creates volumes of shadows and lights reminiscent of Mediterranean architecture.
