CNDJ Extension of the Elementary School

Notre Dame de Jamhour is characterized by its privileged location in the heart of a dense pine forest, on the hill of Yarzé overlooking Beirut.
The design of the new extension took into consideration the preservation and enhancement of the unique landscape of the site.
To house the different classrooms and activities, a new building was created, moreover, a new floor was added to the existing building.
The roof, partially covered, serves as a landscaped schoolyard that enjoys panoramic views over the pine forest and the neighborhood.
Mainly treated in fair-faced concrete, various spaces and elements have affirmed vibrant colors, thus serving as visual landmarks, and developing the sense of discovery and observation of the young students.
