MABILLON

(Primary school; Monthey, Switzerland, 2012)

 

The inhabitants of the Mabillon residential neighborhood in Monthey enjoy a pleasurable park which should become the site for the new primary school. The main objective with the project is to make compatible the existing park-life with the planned school constructions. The programme components have been separated in order to reduce the scale and profile of the buildings, which in turn are organised like beads linked by an invisible string that meanders through the site thus generating convex and concave moments of public space.
