Editorial

Hubert & Roy named for renovation and extension of Le Bourget High School 

Hubert & Roy have been named as architects for the renovation of a 1930's protected training building in Le Bourget, Paris into a high school.

In approaching the re-design the architects considered the question of what to do with existing buildings, especially when those are part of our history. The protective policy of old european culture has lead to caution when it comes to rehabilitation or to refurbishment of buildings. Most conserved buildings are classified and strongly protected. Considering how to adjust them to suit modern needs and a contemporary appearance was studied by Hubert & Roy in their Le Bourget masterplan.

The redesign includes the addition of a floating wooden roof linking all parts of the campus and adding a contemporary edge to the existing buildings. The inclusion of a grassy courtyard-style playground allows for the opportunity of creating a circle of light entering through the glazed surround creating the type of modern conditions expected of a high school whilst maintaining the original character of the buildings from the outside.
