The Claudia Sansovini Architectes studio is involved in projects of various scales and has made attention to materials and use of light a distinctive feature of its designs, while always respecting the surrounding environment. In the College of Vulaines-sur-Seine in France, where the studio won the design competition, architect Claudia Sansovini has chosen porcelain slabs from the Calx and Pietra di Basalto collections by Iris Ceramica, the perfect combination of technological research and nature.
Work is still ongoing on the first block of the building, a lateral wing and the central body, and work will later begin on the block with the second lateral wing.
Forthe central building which will house the archives and multimedia hall, architect Claudia Sansovini has designed openings that are large slashes in the volume. These become distinctive features that identify the building and give lightness to the construction. To give a further lightness to the whole, brise-soleil will cover the ground floor and make the building appear suspended. The college will be completed in September 2018.
