Like an immense suit of protective armour, the extension to Bovernier School forms a natural shield against avalanches. The building is located at the foot of an incline. The habitable wall is articulated in both length and height to adhere closely to the topography of the site and create space for the play and games areas. The enlargement houses a range of functions required by both school and community: physical education, creative activities, kindergarten, plus singing and gym clubs. The enlargement ?plugs? into the existing school via a covered walkway flown above the playground. The sole emergent facade is clad in a metallic skin pierced with mirrored, flush glazing that does not impinge on the continuity. The other facades are greened with vegetation. The lustre of the raw aluminium reflects the light of the hillside opposite, giving the site a new dimension.
