Portuguese School Building – 10 Apr 2013
A group of buildings for the new facilities of the College Cebes (secondary school), which is situated in Foz do Douro, in the municipality of Porto. The project proposes a building that is based on the integration in the surrounding environment characterized by single-family luxury homes, volumes somewhat fragmented, with balconies and rooftops.

Bobigny School Building – 5 Mar 2013
The city centre school in Bobigny is in a strategic urban location, bounded by three large streets and by a pedestrian space on the north. It is in the middle of an urban complex mainly composed of housing, near the city hall. Therefore this new school is a visually remarkable amenity, visible by its façades and its roof, a founding element of the project onto which the openings of the neighbouring dwellings face.

Dagenham Park School – 31 Oct 2012
Dagenham Park Church of England School is one of the final BSF projects to be delivered. It replaces a number of outdated buildings with a new performing arts teaching building within a unified campus of the retained Sports Centre and D&T Building. The overall budget for the project was £22.6m which represents genuine value and the creation of a major new asset for the school and local community.

Claude Bernard School – 29 Oct 2012
Despite the surface area of the lot, its location near the canal provides very interesting poetic potential. So that the children can benefit fully from the location and enjoy the views, we have created two frontages, one north-facing, and the other south-facing. Along the Boulevard Mac Donald, a three-storey block forms a screen that protects the playground, reduces noise pollution, and provides a sense of depth when you stand on the front courtyard and look through the foyer to the playground.
Binh Duong School, Vietnam

Binh Duong School – 27 Aug 2012
Binh Duong, a new city 30 minutes away from Ho Chi Minh City, has a typical tropical climate all year round. The site is located in the middle of a flourishing forest…people are in harmony with the nature, making the border between the inside and the outside ambiguously. The architects tried to embed the building into the site by delivering Vietnam-orientated generous spirit of natural land into the school design.

Allschwil School Competition – 5 Jul 2012
The competition asks for a big school in Allscwhil, a low density residential zone, in the only free spot of a certain dimension in the area. The proposal seeks keeping the public void by formalizing a proposal near of the environment. After a careful analysis of the program, two main piece dimensions appear: the common pieces of a certain dimension (gym, day school, music school and workshops) and the specific classrooms of primary and secondary school.

Brixton School Building Development
This radical new school building development broadens not only the educational diversity of this active and historical part of London but also augments the built environment in a predominantly residential area. The building assumes a strong urban character and identity which is legible to both the local and neighbouring zones.It offers a learning environment that is spatially reassuring thereby being able to engage the students actively. The design of the building, proffers that, which contemporary architecture can, to create a healthy atmosphere as a milieu for progressive teaching routines.
Embelgasse School, Vienna, Austria

Embelgasse School Building
This is a vocational training school for administration. With its large glass surfaces, the ground floor affords an insight into everyday school life, opening the inside of the block to the street. The outward appearance of the new vocational training school is characterized by openness, transparency, and through views. On the upper floors, what is going on inside the school is presented, in a typecase-like grid pattern, as part of the facade and thus of the street space. In this way, the close connection between administration and the public finds positive architectural expression on both sides.
