Context

This building was built in 1708 and became a school in 1883.  Since 2006, it has been subject to several renovations led by AHA, during school holidays.

Challenge

To welcome the building into the 21st century while duly respecting its cultural and historical identity.

Concept

Throughout the different renovation campaigns, our priority has been to preserve and highlight the buildings fixtures and fittings.  Thus, we focused our attention on its fireplaces, carpentry, and 18th century espagnolettes. These historical elements have been complemented with the introduction of contemporary materials such as LED lighting, solvent-free paint, and new natural timber floorboards. A compliance study on heat and energy standards is currently being carried out.
