Lycée Condorcet – International French SchoolVogl
The French School of Sydney is constructing a 4-Stage Master Plan prepared by Lacoste + Stevenson. Stage 1 is the first expression of the direction the school will take to 2020 and beyond; a contemporary addition that sits comfortably with the existing building.
The generous learning spaces are naturally lit with high and low level windows that also assist cross ventilation augmented with ceiling fans. The upper 3 learning space combine to form one large space for exams and events. All learning spaces can be furnished to suit traditional and collaborative teaching styles. Colour is introduced in the carpet, joinery, doors, external blinds and glass WC walls in a playful and contrasting manner to the charcoal cladding and white interior walls.
The architects intention was to make the building user friendly through the use of automation which consisted of automatic awnings, louvres and blinds. The interior of the building was acoustically treated through the use of Decor Systems Vogl perforated ceiling panels.
As we learnt in French class - these new educational spaces are "sensationnel"!
