Green Roof School Disappears into Hillside

Green Roof School in Revin, France

Some lucky students in Revin, France, will soon be attending a cool school. With undulating, grass roof buildings terraced into the hillside, the Lycee Jean Moulin is practically invisible when seen from a distance (image overleaf). From the inside, students will enjoy an environment with a natural feel, and plenty of exercise climbing to their next class (image overleaf).

Inspired by Nature
OFF Architecture, in partnership with Duncan Lewis Scape Architecture and Jean de Giacinto, conceptualized the restoration project for the Lycee Jean Moulin. OFF took inspiration from wind-blown glacial peaks and the topography of the site itself, projected upward one story into the roof of each building arrayed on the location.
