Primary energy need :
(Calculation method : RT 2012 )
Construction of a facility to gather on the same site:
- Primary school
- Elementary classes.
- A youth center consisting of a recreational home without accommodation
- A youth shelter.
The site is on the edge of a natural space which is intended to remain with an unobstructed view of the plain. The land has an elevation across approximately 10 m.
Down the field, one level gives access at the school and to the restoration and its two separate courts.
At the top level, is the leisure center, it is accessible from the top of the site; in the hill the youth shelter.
Each program entity can operate independently. At the top, the views are unobstructed, access and outdoor spaces allow fluid circulation, suitable for children, families (strollers) and PMR.
The project is in close to the topography of the site. The buildings are implanted on the existing platform with courts and playground. The entire roofing is treated at 70% in revegetation.
Regarding the environmental approach, the architectural approach integrates bioclimatic scale efficiently and simply.
A performance envelope ensures by means of bio-based insulation and load-bearing structures and not wooden carrier, insulation and an effective phase shift as the winter comfort appearance and reducing losses on the aspect comfort summer .
Control of solar gains and ensured by appropriate orientation of premises according to the uses spread over the year and still effective sun protection for the most part for creating comfortable and protected outdoor areas.
Additionally the spatial organization of spaces, creating patio, ensures for almost all local a cross which allows firstly a generous and comfortable natural lighting, and the other a passive quality regulation air and thermal comfort conditions by using the torque natural ventilation through-majority, and the inertia of the concrete that is found in the supporting inner structure (seismic risk) and soil.
Mechanical systems, in line with the regulations are implemented for and optimize the building's passive behavior.
Sustainable development approach of the project ownerEstablishment on the edge of a natural space and unobstructed view of the plain.
complex topography with an elevation of more than 10m between the bottom and top access.
Registration in the slope and clarification by the programmatic functions.
Sharing spaces between school groups and leisure center.
Easy access and trails.
Geographical proximity and clear links
Search for environmental quality, innovation and energy saving, integrated design, construction, maintenance.
Architectural descriptionThe site is on the edge of a natural space which is intended to remain so, with a view on the plain. The land at an elevation across approximately 10 m. The play of volumes of nesting allows insertion of the building into the natural slope of the terrain. The selected party is simple: At the bottom of the field, one level gives access at the school and to the restoration and its two separate courts. At the top level, is the leisure center, it is accessible from the top of the site; in the hill the youth shelter. Each program entity can operate independently. At the top, the views are clear, accessible and outdoor spaces allow fluid circulation, suitable for children, families (strollers) and PMR.

automated natural ventilation by motorized opening (pilot and controller: WINDOW MASTER Denmark) in addition to a double flow probe on air quality and thermal. When the outside temperature allows, the controller opens the windows dedicated to the VN, and blowing and CTA components of recovery are closed reducing ATK operation to 10% .A button for manual control allows the user to take control of the event of default automate.En every local has opened 100% manual

To the east the JY Cousteau street connects the residential area at the sports complex, where road is the main access below (2m) of the platform of the school group.
The path link between the residential area and the college, staff access to the equipment and college students in youth center located in the wooded area in against the top of the set (11m).
Reasons for participating in the competition(s)The building is constructed according to BDM silver approach: "Mediterranean Sustainable Building", ensuring a project and a rational realization, adapting to the environment and respecting environmental concerns.
- Energy performance of the building envelope.
- Inserting the slope allowing differentiated access, independent programmatic entities, and frees views.
