Buildings for education
This extended school set centrally in a new housing development comprises two primary schools, a crèche, a playroom for pre-schoolers, sports facilities and some paramedical services. The shared facilities are concentrated in a central rectangular portion; these consist of a general assembly hall with a sunken floor surrounded by play spaces and meeting rooms, with above it a gym and a rooftop sports field. The four square quadrants are composed of the two schools, the crèche, and all other functions. These portions are themselves assembled round a central hall. Facades have a cladding of square fibreglass-reinforced polyester units except for the fully-glazed ground floor. The rooftop sports area has a glass screen finished with the same polyester units.
