Working with a small budget, NIP Paysage sought to give new identity to everyday materials for a series of primary schools in Montreal. By using primarily paint on existing asphalt surfaces, the overall colour scheme and structures suggest the possibility of activities in the schoolyard. This allows children to use their imagination and interpret the markings as they wish. Supplemented by a few plants and boulders, the designs use minimal materials. This is an example of a solution that is easily implemented for a school site seeking a low-cost retrofit.
Schools: Lambert-Closse Primary School, Paul-Bruchesi Primary School, St. Paul-de-la-croix Primary School, and Gadbois Primary School.
