NIVO9 ARCHITECTES as Architects

This façade renovation project was on the most recent part of the school containing classrooms and gymnasium. Formerly covered with a whitish roughcast, the new facades harmonize with the old existing section while offering a touch of modernity in the choice and arrangement of materials.

The nuanced clay brick unifies the whole school; the delicate vertical and glazed brick insertions provide a distinctive character. In the same spirit, the mosaic on the main facade is unique and offers a perspective on the activities taking place inside.
