With its straightforward volume and its parallel alignment to the street, the new building of the Foundation of Verdeil integrates itself into the existing morphology and functional structure of the neighborhood of Pierrefleur. Accessible from the street, the schoolyard located below lengthens directly inside the entry level of the school, creating a transitional space thus promoting the insertion of the students within the neighborhood. A central staircase distributes the three floors of the building. The classrooms are located at the first floor while that the sports fields are in the prolongation of the classrooms for specialized teaching at the ground-floor. The concrete load bearing structure is expressed by the overhang of the floor slabs. In order to reinforce the visual link between the school and its environment, the façades are designed by large glazed elements. The rhythm and scale of the window frames favor the integration of the building into the vegetation of the wooded lanyard located below and assure the image of the school from the street.
