Located on the outskirts of Paris, the La Courneuve School by Dominique Coulon Et Associés firm is unlike your ordinary educational institution. The experiential interior features a boldly geometric design that makes learning fun. Showcased in a palette of crisp white and bright citrus tones, this futuristic school has been built to replace a run-down housing block.

The 6500 square meter complex is home to classrooms, offices, play areas, an auditorium, primary school, nursery and a leisure lounge. The building's playfully accented exterior features bold pops of color that appear to vary in tone according to the time of day.

From its fascinating facade to its sleek interior, this orange-obsessed space highlights spatial focal points and structural elements in varying shades of yellows, oranges and reds.
