The school complex of Bailly is situated on a changing territory and is located on the starting point of the reconstruction of the scale of the district. The project is inspired by this specific context of the material used – glazed brick – and by the idea of the roof which give reference to the lanterns of the cathedrals. The body of the building seen from the rue de Bailly shows a glazed screen printed façade to protect the intimacy of the children, giving the possibility for transparency in the interior gardens and under the coloured ceiling. The classrooms are organised in the north-south transverse on two levels which end on the firewall on the side of the railway. The roof is truly the fifth façade, perceived as a bright, luminous colour palette. Le groupe scolaire du Bailly s’inscrit sur un territoire en pleine mutation et constitue le point de départ d’une restructuration urbaine. Le bâtiment s’inspire du contexte par le matériau – la brique émaillée-, et par le motif des sheds qui dialoguent avec les lanterneaux des « cathédrales » a proximité. Le corps du bâtiment donne à voir sur la rue une façade vitrée claire laissant entrevoir les jardins intérieurs et les sous faces colorés des sheds de toiture. Les salles de classe s’organisent en lanières transversales Nord-Sud qui se terminent en pignons opaques sur les voies ferrées. Les sous faces des sheds colorées se déclinent comme des voiles légers rythmant le projet jusqu’au parvis d’entrée.
