For the reconstruction and expansion promoted by Parque Escolar, the intervention in this school came from the transformation of pre-fabricated buildings already existant, which occupied the ground in a very dense way for new raised floor buildings, so as to allow a better reading of the new programmatic spaces and also a bigger use of outdoor covered spaces.


The new chromatic treatment and the reorganization of the whole structure of routes, allowed the integration of new volumes with different uses and architectural intentions.
