The construction of the Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni polyvalent high school is part of the redevelopment of its neighborhood, Balate Nord, whose environmental objectives are high. And for good reason, the natural heritage is exceptionally rich.
Thus, our first objective was to translate the very powerful connection that the site and the inhabitants maintain with nature. A connection that expresses itself in the high school through a lush garden that crosses the terrain from one end to another. Water, omnipresent in Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni, accompanies this space on the symbolic path of knowledge. The garden extends on the forecourt, which we have imagined as a place of convergence, meeting and exchange, for people from different backgrounds.
