Image: OFF ArchitectureGreen 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).Image: OFF ArchitectureInspired by NatureOFF 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.
