École Enfants du Monde (International School) in Montréal was initially designed in 1961. Clad in Swisspearl panels, the new façades of the two-story, rectilinear school are mainly white, but are also peppered with black and red to give the school a sense of fun. The local borough experienced an annual increase in the number of primary school pupils, which prompted the School Board to expand several of its schools, most notably the Enfants du Monde school. Due to the design versatility of Swisspearl panels, Birtz Bastien Beaudoin Laforest Architectes decided to clad the École Enfants du Monde with the fiber cement material to add some color and a light-hearted atmosphere to the newly renovated building.
