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 creation of an interconnecting distribution space between the blocks made it possible to overcome the differences in level, annulling architectural barriers and providing a space with a square-like character that contributes to greater socialisation amongst the pupils. The school now has clearly improved conditions of use, safety and full accessibility.
Complementary functions such as the mediatheque and multi-purpose hall were given strategic locations so as to incentivate use of them, individually and as a whole, by the local community outside school hours.
The remodelled school has a capacity for 51 classes and now has a library, multi-purpose hall, a drama workshop, a covered outdoor sports field and other improvements.
A new building was erected, a new covered circulation space added and the exterior spaces were remodelled.
