Collège Jean Monnet Broons


The design by Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten and the French firm CDA (Colas Durand Architectes) for the Jean Monnet secondary school reflects the concept of a modern school. Light wood, robust exposed concrete, a fresh red color and lots of glass characterize the warm, open atmosphere of the interior. The natural and untreated materials also pay tribute to local building traditions. The clear and structured spatial organization facilitates an ideal workflow. The linear, horizontal emphasis of the block-shaped, wood-covered building structure contrasts with the verticality of the interiors, which plays with different heights, lighting designs, intersecting passages and multi-layered sightlines. The three-story auditorium, naturally illuminated through its set of skylights, is at the center of the building. Intersected by numerous bridges and stairs, it offers panoramic and linear views across the various floors, providing clarity and orientation.
