Cité Educative de Lavoisier, La Rochelle, Nouvelle-Acquitaine region, France

For this competition in the city of La Rochelle, Ector Hoogstad Architecten designed a primary school and day care ensemble, which aims to contribute to the renovation of the nearby neighbourhood of Villeneuve les Salines.
The result of this ambition is a perfect learning environment, seamlessly integrated in nature while effectively involved in the social tissue of the area. The existing buildings are maintained and interconnected through a diagonal addition. This results in an N-shaped building that can be approached both from the street and from the adjacent park. The physical hinge of the structure functions as an entrance to the school, but also as a multifunctional public space for locals.
This lively environment is covered by a green canopy that unifies the whole and functions as a green roof, supporting the local ecological biotope while creating energy for the school.
