The facilities are used by five distinct villages and propose a kindergarten, a primary school and a multi-purpose hall (sports, music, theatre, events). On this rather steep site, the brief required several outdoor (flat) surfaces as in the kindergarten’s playground, the schoolyard and for gatherings in general. The project responds to this by providing a central forum (or agora) around which the buildings and retaining walls are set. The new sixth village becomes a significant public facility serving the whole region. The school and the multi-purpose hall (sports hall for pupils) touch at an angle retaining the mountain to the north. The kindergarten is a lower two storeys volume set to the south and overlooking a spectacular alpine view across the valley. In line with a certain tradition in alpine architecture, the buildings are in reinforced concrete, here both inside and out. In some interiors wood is used next to concrete, which is also usual in mountain architecture.
