Private School LCIS – La côte International School, Aubonne VD

As clear and transparent as the teaching

The LCIS private school in Aubonne offers education from pre-school to secondary school level. The complex reveals an ambitious spatial concept: 44 classrooms, 12 multi-functional rooms for science, laboratories, IT and music, a canteen, a library, an auditorium and a double gym.

The trapeze-shaped building is arranged around a large interior courtyard. The three-storey façade is characterised by its regular window pattern.

Starting from the main entrance, the building follows a clear logic as it stretches inwards. The classrooms on the upper floors are located on either side of a wide corridor. Here there are communal areas, closely linked to the circulation corridors, which can be used for group work.
