Built in a period of demographic growth and within the framework of a strong development of the school infrastructures of Geneva, the Renard state school is part of a set of construction of a dozen schools. To respond quickly to this expansion context, the founders of our office have developed a fast and economical precast system which leads to a disassembling of buildings into large structural parts (slabs, facades, walls, etc.). The buildings housing the sports halls and classrooms (distributed on either side of a central corridor) are interconnected by low linking volumes according to a construction template.
