An extension to Ernest Renan School made of wood.
Elliptical in shape, this 600 sq. m. school building on three levels features a reception lobby, activity rooms and a music hall. Designed by the Foster & Partners architectural practice and built by Arte Charpentier Architects, the building combines wood, concrete, metal and a glass façade to give it a powerful iconic dimension. One of the most innovative features of this project is the early involvement of its future users in the design process through creative and educational activities.

Begun in June 2012 for Nacarat (Rabot Dutilleul Group), construction of the first URBAWOOD has been completed.
