The metal roof pans adapt the same aesthetic as the blocks by introducing variations and rhythms in the folds of the roof elements to create coloured modulations on the facades. The undulating folded metal roof protects the patios from risks of overheating in summer and creates a microclimate in the terraced gardens. A series of separate but linked blocks in a park, arranged delicately on the site. The blocks have corner windows and triple orientation provided by lateral openings on the terraced gardens. The wall finnish is corrugated stainless steel cladding , polished to varying degrees and perfored. The lobby is entirely glazed and opens onto both the playground and the forecourt with a 8.5 metre cantilever. A suspended openwork staircase provides access to the library. The circulations enlivened by the glass roof atrium. The folded roof includes both glazed surfaces and metal panels. The materiality of the interior is composed of architectural concrete and timber cladding. Large windows facing each other create a dual orientation and open towards the landscape. The gymnasium was designed like an independant block following on from education blocks.
