Les troismondes

The Václav Havel school group, located at the heart of the GINKO sustainable neighbourhood in Bordeaux, is aligned with the surrounding facades and is in keeping with the size of other buildings in the area (three storeys). The school group is surrounded by green areas which provide continuity with the ZAC GINKO’s landscaped spaces.

The school group includes a day care centre, a pre-school and a primary school, each on its own level with its own playground and waiting area, and a visual connection to the others.The primary school forecourt is on the ground floor.The pre-school and day care centre are accessed via a ramp which accommodates bikes and prams.

The second floor is the day care centre, the sky.It is the “atmospheric layer”, with its luminous, nuanced and translucent ambiance.

The first floor is pre-school, the forest.It is the “biological layer”, designed to experience and discover the self and others.Hideouts and cabins abound.

The ground floor is the primary school, earth.It is the “geological and topographical layer” with a connection to the mineral world.An argilo-calcareous stone base from the Gironde region occupies the centre of the playground.

At every level, the patio-playgrounds, the “green hearts of the school”, have been designed on a scale which corresponds to the relevant age range.When children go from one school to another, they change levels and worlds:they are growing up.These changes structure their development.The big kids’ playground is below, they can see it, and will get there in good time…
