It clearly shows it belongs to the institutional, educational and sports place owing to the distance from the street and to the fact that the courtyard open to the south and the Dents-du-Midi.

Its U-shape takes all the surrounding school area into account and connects the several playgrounds to open green spaces and sports facilities.

The new construction, which is linked to the sports complex, offers wide access to the services installed at the court level, such as the theater / assembly hall, the cover of the Place des Fêtes, the double gym room and the judo hall. These activities denote the public status of the schoolyard. The upper floors are classrooms with a clear division of the two schools each accessible through a separate entrance.

The volume configuration that takes full advantage of the different levels makes the place and the courtyard easily accessible from the street, the station, the school area or the car parks. The project adds on to the existing sports complex as well as bringing spatial order into the current area.
