The Athenée Royal primary school, located in a working-class neighbourhood, represents an important step in the team’s theoretical development.
The simple plan for this small school (three classrooms, four practical work corners, one playroom and utility rooms) emphasizes the importance of a consistent correspondence among space, structure and fittings.
The project also explores for the first time the notion of virtual thickness for facades.
The orthogonal framework (with its correlating 45° angles) presents a leitmotiv that is both seen, in the design of habitable space, and unseen, in the structural components of floors and ceilings.
