Designed by French architecture firm Archi5, the Marcel Sembat High School extension is located in the Sotteville-les-Rouen region in France. It is composed of a mix of 1900′s buildings that range all the way from 1930 to 1990. The school is located next to a public park, and the architects wanted to extend this greenery all the way to the school itself. They also needed to create additional space and reorganize the school to make its layout more efficient. The 12,700 square meter extension that they came up with is a beautiful exercise in green design.
