Our proposal for the expansion of the Lycée Français of Madrid aims not only to provide additional space for teaching, but also to subtly compose with the topography of the site to build an ideal space for the development of generations of students who attend. The site planned for the implementation of the extension is the current yard of the establishment. Taking advantage of the topography, our project proposes a solution that forms a coherent whole with the existing building by creating several sequences consisting of patios, gardens, terraces. The art pavilion is a separate bloc, placed on the roof of the lycée, it differs by its light structure in metal and wood that overflow to protect the interior of the sun’s rays. In the south-east part of the site, the project continues with a new sports hall, a volume that fits into the topography to limit the visual impact and integrate into the landscape.
