École Française de Valmont, Lausanne, Switzerland

École Française de Valmont

The project consists in an intervention on an existing school, located on the top of Lausanne, integrating new classrooms, a sport hall and a multifunction hall.

The extension is done by the addition of a perpendicular arm to the existing body, along the North limit of the terrain, to preserve as much as possible of green space.

The gymnasium, with a roof used as playground, is partially in the ground and has natural light. This hall, with the primary classrooms, are the base of a wood pavilion hosting the pre-school classes.
