School group. Mixed wood-concrete structure, straw insulation. Photovoltaic plant. Positive energy building. The Department of Ardèche has joined forces with the commune of Saint-Cirgues to build a school complex with an innovative and experimental character. It responds to a reflection on a new way of understanding the management and organisation of a school in a rural environment. The school complex accommodates 200 pupils, from 3 to 14 years old. In addition, there is a boarding school with 30 beds, half board, libraries and a multi-activity room open to the public.
