Robert Doisneau High School, Corbeil Essonnes
The Robert Doisneau high school in Corbeil-Essonnes was inaugurated in 1959 and is one of the largest high schools in Ile-de-France, providing general, vocational and specialised technical education.
With a location adjacent to the sensitive area of Tarterets, its architecture is characteristic of the urbanism of the large campuses of the 1960s.
Our extension project strengthens the identity of the “landscaped campus” by the addition of softly defined “pavilions”, embellished by larch panelling and uniting the new defining functions of the school: reception, theatre and a canteen to cater for 2,500 meals per day. These new functions required heavy restructuring of the existing classroom buildings.
