Lycée Marcel Sembat

Sotteville-Lès-Rouen, France

Highly Commended

2012

Galvanized steel has been used extensively in the recent renovation and extension of the Marcel Sembat high school. The school is dedicated to the teaching of automobile mechanics and bodywork. Its new workshops required high ceilings, large volumes and natural indoor lighting.

The architects have restored a unity and a strong and modern visual identity to the school - re-connecting it with its environment. In particular the workshops naturally marry the topography of the park.

The new building begins on the edge of the park and becomes integrated gently into the site by the wavy design of its 8,500 m² vegetated roof -the fourth biggest of its kind in Europe.
