This school exterior, arranged by Amelia Tavella Architectes, was made to seamlessly blend into the lush mountainous landscape. The building is situated in the village of Santa-Maria-Siché on the Corsica island. For the development of the structure, Amelia Tavella Architectes used materials derived from nature. The school exterior's traditional and uncluttered aesthetic is communicated by the use of stone and timber — two materials that ensure incredible structural integrity while being non-invasive to the natural surroundings.
The mere use of wood in the context of the commissioned educational building is termed by the architecture studio as being a pathway to the "opportunity to live in real symbiosis with nature." Thus, Amelia Tavella Architectes succeeded in the creation of a building with low visual impact.
