The intervention project reflects the guidelines defined by the Secondary School Modernisation Programme and meets the new requirements of the school’s educational project, contemporary teaching/learning models and current environmental quality and energy efficiency standards.
The existing building was reorganised, investing in the creation of a central nucleus at the confluence of the main entrance where the spaces with the greatest collective use – the library, canteen and student support spaces – are concentrated and the areas designed for use by the surrounding community. This nucleus serves as an interface between the two teaching blocks and links to the sports and recreational spaces.
To the south, parallel to the existing building a new wing for technological and computer education was built. A new volume was also built, orthogonally to the new wing, to house the music room and multipurpose space, was well as support facilities for sports. An outdoor but covered multi-sports space at the southern end finishes off the complex.
