The intervention in Dr. Joaquim Gomes Ferreira Alves Secondary School is characterised by the definition of a new front to the school, involving the re-design of the entrance for pedestrians and vehicles and the repositioning of the gate/gatehouse.
A new workshop building was erected, with the former workshops being replaced by a U-shaped building that now houses the new laboratories.
The intervention also included a new sports area to the south of the existing building so as to integrate new programmatic demands.
In the school’s exterior spaces, the greenhouse was relocated and the whole circulation system between the blocks was reorganised. A large outdoor café space was created at the gravitational centre of the complex, prolonging the café and restaurant spaces.
