Rainbow school remodel

Palatre & Leclère did this spectacular remodel on the Ecole Maternelle Pajol in Paris's 18th arrondissement. As Tuija Seipell writes on The Cool Hunter: "The building has kept its 1940s brick-wall feel, yet it radiates exuberance and has an up-to-date energy. Most likely its current users feel it was built just for them."

  1. It’s lovely, but they are going to have to do the upkeep or it will get depressing as it fades and chips.

    1. Maybe the idea is to make a statement on the history of multiculturalism in France.

  2. Wow that’s just down the street from us, and the renovation is brand new. They are renovating a lot of the buildings on the street (that abuts the Gare de l’Est train tracks) and doing it well, it seems. Look at 37 rue Pajol on GoogleMaps to compare to what the façade used to look like.
