Charenton - Le -Pont

It is opposite the Bois de Vincennes, one of the largest and most prestigious Paris parks, that the former Lycée Jean Jaurès stands. Dating back to the 1930s, it was intended to be an example of the best architecture the Republic had to offer for the education of its youth.

The former Lycée Jean Jaurès in Charenton, built in the 1930s by the architect Henri GUYON, can only fully achieve its transformation by preserving the beauty of its original appearance. The conservation of the entirety of the Art Deco façade will not only contribute to preserving the prestige of an exclusive location in the Paris suburbs, but will also add to a varied and convivial architecture.

This project will therefore be able to become the nerve centre in a lively neighbourhood, where urban life blends inextricably with green spaces, meeting the multiple needs of different lifestyles, where the lines between built and green spaces become blurred, and where the aesthetics of the past and the contributions of modernity merge. The building's location at the crossroads naturally calls for it to fully open up to the trees in the Bois de Vincennes opposite.
