    Paul Langevin school group

    A low-carbon project in wood frame with adobe walls for reconnecting with nature in a very urban and concrete world.

    In this large complex of the 1960s made up of towers, the idea was to build a low-carbon, warm and bright building to reconnect with nature. The structure and envelope of the school complex are built of wood. They display, at the neighborhood level, the original identity of this public equipment while providing great comfort of use. The basement walls are made of raw earth, worked by fellow builders thus reconnecting with ancestral and traditional gestures. The outdoor spaces are lined with greenhouses, hives, educational gardens accessible to students. The connection to the land and elements is also symbolically reflected in the Aboriginal ground motifs drawn in the playground. The classrooms are bathed in light with unobstructed, cross-views, while a natural ventilation system fosters well-being and allows for significant air renewal. For this frugal building, the energy aspect is also privileged. The proposed strategy includes a Trombe wall to optimize solar heating, but also photovoltaic panels and an efficient thermal envelope. The project was recognized as a Francilien Green Building (BDF).
