Beautiful Green Roofed School for French Students


A brand new amazing school has been created for students in Revin, France. The green terraced construction has green roofs and from the top is seen as a terraced landscape that virtually vanishes into the hillside.

The design of the Lycee Jean Moulin is credited to Paris-based, Off Architecture that worked in collaboration Duncan Lewis Scape Architecture and Jeans Giacinto. The building mixes perfectly with the countryside thanks to its roofs that resemble green hills.

Besides representing a beautiful construction, the school can also boast some eco-friendly features. There are large windows that allow the sunlight to penetrate large spaces of the building. The school is expected to be finished in 2012. More images are available here.
