WORK – OasisLIVING – The Cherry Orchard
The rectorate of the Créteil Academy is entering a new era. It has moved into a building with a wooden structure whose cubic volume is deconstructed by a series of steps that form an open-air staircase winding around the building. It is one of the largest public wooden buildings built in France. The strict matrix paradoxically serves total flexibility. It translates into spaces connected by large double-height atriums, modular floors, a central garden towards which all views converge, and a domestic touch created by the ubiquitous wood in floors and partitions. Its fully flexible layout, many outdoor spaces, wide full-height windows and fine structure make it an airy building which affirms its closeness to the world of students through offices adjoining a new university restaurant, amply dimensioned meeting areas and multiple views to look into the future.
