French studio Onze04 has designed a public school which focuses on rehabilitating the existing architecture.
The public school is located on the edge of the town center, in a mixed area where isolated individual houses, sports fields and technical buildings are intermingled. While the initial program is limited to proposing multiple scattered renovations and extensions, the architecture of the project proposes a comprehensive long-term functional and economic strategy. Rehabilitate as much as possible, deconstruct only what cannot be preserved, and take advantage of this to design the new articulations of the school.

This project has been longlisted in the civic building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
