Renovation of the Collège Jacques Ellul, Bordeaux, Nouvelle Acquitaine region, France

For the design competition for the Collège Jacques Ellul In Bordeaux Ector Hoogstad Architecten designed a unique school with a 400m long, public accessible, running track on its roof. The large longitudinal atrium in the centre of the school connects the old city centre to the Bastide area redevelopment and, at the same time, becomes the central heart of the school. Connecting students and teachers the atrium functions as a gallery with the sports hall running track, library and educational spaces on display. Through opening the large glass doors this multifunctional space becomes one with the outside schoolyard. The backbone of the building with the educational spaces has a highly flexible layout to incorporate the ongoing development of learning methods.
