France is, as we all know, famous (not only, but also) for its fashion, architecture and design. In fact, the french preserve a lot the arts and the cultural side of life. Beauty is not just a value, it’s to be applied and enjoyed. As so, nothing is left to chance.
To prove that, french architecture studio Daudré-Vignier was called to intervene in the design of a High School in the city of Sissonne. And that’s how ‘froelicher’ high school was born.
Located at the city’s limits in Sissonne and conceived to optimize the site’s potential, the educational facility offers a spacious setting for students in a sprawling green context.
Technical, functional, and sustainable constraints are integrated into the plan, with financial viability and pragmatic design principles acting as guidelines for the architecture team.
With a double-height area, there are classrooms up and downstairs, improving the use of space. The monochromatic scheme gives it an industrial, clean vibe.
Despite the fact that the campus is distant from other buildings, surrounded by a natural environment, the architecture gives it a modern, high approach. ‘froelicher’ takes advantage of surrounding topography, and makes a stand between obviousness and subtlety.
Its size and waved form melts into the landscape, adopting the land’s natural form. Expressive masses, accompanied by a palette of natural materials, merges seamlessly with the environment to become a dynamic educational ensemble.
