Located at one of the entrances to the city, the school group announces the renewal of Marly. The reunion of the Nelson Mandela and Louise Michel schools is a strong political act that must be embodied by a unifying and emblematic school facility. The neighboring plot of land, currently uncultivated, will become a park for the inhabitants and will constitute a green lung associated with the space of the playgrounds. This vegetal landscape constitutes the base of the project. A school turned towards nature, in the heart of the trees. During the studies, it became apparent that the cost of rehabilitating the Dupont house was excessive in relation to its potential and it will therefore disappear. It has marked the territory and the memory of the place and its demolition will have to be accompanied by a symbolic moment for the inhabitants of Marly. The implantation of the building offers several levels of reading. The project is developed on two levels, a brick base and a wooden attic. The first level in brick draws and affirms the alignment with the future planted mall. Its angles are softened by solid curves. A curved inflection widens the entrance square protected by large planted flowerbeds. The entrances to the two schools are marked by recessed inflections in the facade.
