Ecole Maternelle Nimes – 20 Sep 2012
A large part of the programme is placed on the first upper floor to comply with flood protection requirements for the area. As a result, the architecture is unique among the design schemes produced by the firm. The building seems to float a few metres above the ground, like a vessel hovering at the height of the roofs of the surrounding houses.

Carre d’Art Nimes
The building shows how an architecture project can not only encourage a dialogue between ancient and modern architecture but can also provide a powerful catalyst for reinvigorating the fabric of a city. This contemporary building references the courtyard and terraced vernacular of the region. It is articulated as a nine-storey structure, half of which is sunk deep into the ground, keeping the building’s profile low in sympathy to the scale of the surrounding buildings.
