The building of the École Enfants du Monde in Montréal was constructed and inaugurated in 1961 under the name École St-Louis-de-Gonzague and was designed by the architect Gaétan Le Borgne. Featuring two upper storeys and a basement, the building has a rectangular shape and sits parallel to Rue Marcel.
It backs onto Parc Noël, which has a large number of trees. A row of mature trees borders the building’s front section. The Saint-Laurent borough saw an annual increase in primary school student numbers, particularly in the Bois-Franc neighborhood. This prompted the Building Owner, Commission scolaire Marguerite-Bourgeoys (CSMB) to enlarge several of its schools – most notably the Enfants-du-Monde school.
By reason of the design diversity of Swisspearl® panels they decided to clad the École Enfants du Monde with this fiber cement material to give some color to the new renovated building.
