College 400

  • Extension of the college SEGPA: 2 workshops-kitchen, 2 classrooms, 3 residences of function

  • On an abrupt slope, the building in the Lauragais area privileges a functional architecture.

    “An educational place, a respectful environmental insertion of the city of Caraman “. This quotation of the project management competition sums up entirely this plan. Located on 2 trays on a 12m gradient, the secondary school extension (classrooms and SEGPA) is a logical addition to the previous complex opened to the Pyrenees and the south. In the lower part of the site, the 3 accommodations for the civil servants present a wall of massive bedrock. Inscribed in a classified area, the plan takes into account the imposed guidelines to establish a dialogue between old Caraman and the secondary school in the vertical lines. Concrete, clay and Bakelite wood are the essential materials of a rational perspective allowing the pupils make the most of the surrounding landscape with the Lauragais region and with the Pyrenees.
