Yoonseux Architectes : Extension de l’école Primaire J. Jaurès II

A Livry-Gargan Seine Saint Denis, the Kyunglan Yoon architects and Philippe Seux of Architects Yoonseux agency come to deliver a school extension project Jean Jaurès II. A new realization that just curl up between the two main buildings and existing parcel boundary.

Designed according to a simple line, the extension of 540 m² is a contemporary intervention compared to older buildings. Students access classrooms by crossing a gallery open to the outside, where the joistings are staged and the vegetation ubiquitous. Bordering the garden, the building stretches its long volume and extends into a part of the courtyard where the beams are thrown over the roof and leave the underside of bare wood. Larch wood used both indoors and outdoors helps to create a warm atmosphere for the development of children. This organic note dialogue with the roughness of raw concrete and the bright colors applied by keys.
