Archi5 : Groupe scolaire Port Chemin Vert

In Aubervilliers (93), a brand new school group marks the revival of a former industrial district. Designed by the agency archi5, this ultra-fun project has all the features necessary for the optimal comfort of schoolchildren. Ready to go back to school?

"Who had this crazy idea, one day to reinvent the architecture of the school? It is this sacred archi5 agency! " So we could say about this project and its designers, as it moves away from standards in schools.

Located in Aubervilliers, in a former industrial fallow area, Groupe Port Chemin Vert School has everything to make you want to go to school, and it's not nothing! View of the sky, its shape already has something fun: built on a pentagon-shaped ground, it adopts a crescent moon plan, as a sign of its unique character. A bias that is not without advantage, since it allows the installation of a large courtyard in the void thus created. With its attractive colorful circles on the ground, this recreation area dedicated to games and sports is partly protected by a curved stretch of canvas, also curved. Despite the presence of this outdoor place, it is the perimeter of the plot that offers the most promises to school children. Firstly thanks to the construction of a terrace on stilts dedicated to the little ones. But also and especially by the development of the flat roof. Fully vegetated, it offers a welcome green space in this urbanized neighborhood, while opening a teaching area for teachers. "This is the place where the idea of ​​learning disappears in favor of discovery. The garden is observed, is lived. Just climb to contemplate nature, conclude the designers of archi5. And we can only regret not having been to school, at the time, in an achievement of this kind.
