One of the first aspect relates to the fact that take full advantage of the free territory and natural school, and also to displace the centrality of school for more protected areas, with greater potential in their relationship with the skilled outdoor spaces.
Founded on these premises, and also the functional program to be implemented, the proposal appears to create two different space groups, although forming part of a single organism.
Thus it is possible to develop a partially covered piazza, which not only ensures the connection between all components spaces, how to configure a space to stay abroad for the rainy days of winter, or for the warmer days of spring and summer. This plaza connects the existing four pavilions, an east-west direction, crossing a new north-south axis, which will open up on a park / garden.
In the inner boundary of the square (north and south) and arise Library Multipurpose room as central elements of the program, dialoguing with each other. North, building a new L-shaped, home to new programmatic areas of intervention at the same time that supports the creation of the new garden.
The central square that the level of the ground floor is open in all directions and on that permeability of its most notable features is also marked by the presence of high dimension two galleries that cross the space in the east-west direction, forming a boundary dynamic, and offering a comprehensive overview of the whole. In the center of the square covered cut up a void in the shape of an ellipse with 270m2.
The sports pavilion is constructed entirely from scratch, including spas. Broadly contiguous, other sports fields are proposed, open, which together with the existing artificial turf field, provide the number of new spaces for sports activities.
The proposed intervention also operates a topographic redefinition in the school. The outdoor play is reset, linking up the different areas by stairs and ramps.
