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.
In addition to improving the conditions for use, management and maintenance of the school, the overall school space was reorganised and extended. The existing pavilions were linked by a covered space recreation space for the pupils which is directly connected to the main entrance by an axis providing access to the administrative/management offices, pupil support spaces and the library, multipurpose hall and canteen/snack bar. The location allows for the use of all or some of the new facilities outside school hours.
At the south-west end of the site a separate structure was built to house workshop courses.
The exterior spaces were redesigned with a view to improving accessibility, increasing the permeable surface area and tree coverage and regulating parking.
