Broc is a village next to the Alps and its school needs to expand. Engaging with the imagery of Alpine architecture, we designed two sibling buildings touching at a corner. Together, they frame a system of open spaces, delineating a soft yet clear transition from the village realm to the school one. The smaller building houses a multifunctional hall open to the village square, while the larger one contains a kindergarten and a primary school: entrance to both is at the point of junction. A loggia softens the transition from the interiors to the outdoor spaces, transforming the garden into an extension of the classrooms.
