Develop and revitalize rural areas:
- Reflecting a sustainable eco-built architecture of level E3C2 (efficient envelope, orientations, compactness, solar contributions, summer comfort, renewable energies).
- Building housing differently for students whose professional objectives are oriented towards the sectors of the environment, agri-food, biotechnologies, water resources and the animation of a territory.
- Promoting landscaping and gentle pathways.
- Respecting the environment and preserving biodiversity with an ecologist.
- Managing rainwater on the plot (specialized design office).
- Using local, durable and aesthetic materials (local wood, tiles with local factories, biosourced insulation).
- A strong reusing approach (flat tiles on the facade, interior furniture, Benjes hedges).
- Co-designing the project with the users and making the project a testing ground to raise student awareness (6 participatory workshops, school site, welcome booklet).
- A cleaning site approach with follow-up and mobilization with the actors.
Building users opinion
Lau Re: "It's good that the school made these accommodations even if at the time the boarding school was nice for the first years, we had to find another one afterwards and it was more of a hassle. Great initiative La Raque!"
If you had to do it again?
We had planned a water heater called "Twido solar", a hybrid solution essentially powered by direct injection by photovoltaic panels, which had obtained TITLE V approval; but during the bidding this product and the company went bankrupt. We therefore replaced this innovative solution with the production of domestic hot water from a thermodynamic system. The AUER brand EDEL AIR system is based on air/water type thermodynamic production which has a 1.2 kW electrical backup.

- Birdhouses: Several passerines have been observed on the site, including the House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) , the European Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis) and the Greenfinch (Chloris chloris). To remedy the scarcity of natural nesting sites, shelters for sparrow colonies have been directly integrated into the facades of two buildings of the eco-campus. Three general nesting boxes for passerines were also positioned.
- Bat houses: The wooded area of the school is a favorable place for the hibernation of tree bats. Located in a mainly agricultural landscape, the eco-campus has integrated the installation of three bat houses on trees bordering the basin. They thus complete the natural shelters provided by the old trees in the forest.
- Melliferous flower meadow to attract pollinating insects.
- Largely fruit and berry-bearing tall stem trees and shrubs, a food source for some species of birds.
- Perennial climbing plants, suitable for the nesting of certain species of birds.
- Country hedges and dry hedges, habitats for a whole host of species (insects, spiders, micromammals, birds, etc.).

In total, the reuse operation saved the equivalent of:
We can consider that when a material is reused, the project avoids the emission of CO2 during certain phases of the life cycle of the material. In particular, we can consider that it should not have been produced specifically for this project and subtract the carbon impact of production (phases A1 to A3).
Considering a collective FDES file for wood for interior fittings from the INIES database, we consider an impact on global warming of 14.9 kgeqCO2/m2 of wood, including 8.8 kgeqCO2/m2 for the production phase. This is therefore 43,930 kgeqCO2 avoided over the total life cycle of the building, i.e. 22.2 kgeqCO2/m2SDP.
For the 50% of flat terracotta tiles on the facades , we can base ourselves on a collective FDES sheet for terracotta cladding from the INIES database, we consider an impact on global warming of 44.4 kgeqCO2/m2 of terracotta including 35.6 kgeqCO2/m2 for the production phase. This is therefore 6,280 kgeqCO2 avoided over the total life cycle of the building, i.e. 8.2 kgeqCO2/m2SDP.

Indoor Air quality
- A+ paint;
- No air quality measurement, but effective ventilation to evacuate pollutants and the housing is through;
- All bathrooms have windows.
- Privileged dual North/South orientation;
- Through housing;
- Perspectives on the great landscape;
- Pergolas and shaded places.
- The living room has a very large window which can be closed with a rolling shutter;
- The bathroom has a window that can be closed with a shutter;
- The kitchen is lit by a glass door which can be closed with an interior blind.

- The wardrobe and the bed are not fixed to be able to organize your room according to your needs and aspirations of the moment;
- A piece of furniture on wheels allows various uses: bench, bedside table, bookcase. The chair, the bed and the bench also make it possible to create seats around the table/desk in order to eat or work together;
- The furniture is colorful and different depending on the room (circular economy approach).
Quality of life and services
- A manager makes it possible to guarantee good integration and relations with the students, but also respect for the site and its environmental commitments.
- The welcome booklet produced by the project management (see PDF document) provides historical knowledge of the approach, good practices, sensitive points and challenges).
Initiatives promoting low-carbon mobility
On the scale of the territory (rural environment), the public transport network is poorly developed, which obliges students and staff to regularly use their vehicles to get to the École Supérieure de La Raque. The size of the existing car park, located at the entrance to the site and in the immediate vicinity of the housing created, is a good illustration of this lack of proposals in terms of mobility. The number of parking spaces is sufficient for the site; therefore, no additional places have been provided for under the project. The project prohibits the passage of vehicles in the heart of the housing by the dimensioning of the paths. The project therefore contributes to promoting soft and pedestrian traffic by offering routes in connection with nature.
By offering closed and covered bicycle rooms, distributed in the different groups of buildings, the project encourages the use of alternative transport to the private car. However, the students testified that the bicycle is used very little, because there is no specific adapted arrangement proposed by the municipality. Only an existing country lane that leads to Lasbordes is suitable for cyclists, as it is rarely used by cars.
Unfortunately, the busiest villages where students prefer to go are too far away and not passable by bike. The eco-campus anticipates the future and sees in the long term: these bicycle rooms could find a use if the evolution of the school continues and if it requests the development of cycle paths from the services of the town hall. . In the short term, if the bicycle rooms have no use, they can find other uses: workshop, storage of gardening equipment, etc.

Reasons for participating in the competition(s)
In a rural context, this project led by the social landlord Alogéa, project owner of the operation is reproducible for its ecological, participative and regenerative approach:
- An eco-campus with proven environmental performance (bioclimatism, geothermal, photovoltaic) with Seuil architecture and the thermal consultancy agency environment Ecovitalis, which has also followed the Sustainable Building Occitanie approach.
- Building with businesses, industrialists and local sawmills with eco-materials (wood, wood wool, cellulose wadding, cork) and a circular economy approach (reuse, clean site, recycling, local economy) with Seuil architecture, the thermal consultancy agency structures Tassera and the acoustician Emacoustic.
- A user-guided design in a participatory approach (survey and 6 participatory workshops) with Seuil architecture and AMU Una Ingénierie.
- Creation of functional habitats for local fauna with the ecologist Sarah Meyer and the School of La Raque.
