"In an exceptional site in Paris, the crèche will temporarily accommodate children during the renovation work on the neighbourhood crèche.
At the Jardins du Luxembourg, the building had to meet the requirements of a very short period of permanence. We wanted a sustainable building, bio-sourced and dismountable but above all one that could be reused in the same or another form. For this reason, this building is completely reconfigurable and can be used for this program but also for others. The project was an opportunity to test the efficiency of wood prefabrication and to test the potential of this technique.The crèche was therefore designed on the basis of a primary dismountable structure inspired by Jean Prouvé's construction system. The facades and floors are built completely in wooden modules to be dismantled and reassembled, handled and transported easily. The solid modular panels and glass modules as well as the floor modules are identical, prefabricated in the workshop. They were assembled in eight weeks on site. The Luxembourg site will be restored in two years' time. "
