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 to the north-east and north-west by means of two new two-storey structures linked to the existing building. The north-east structure defines the new entrance to the school, connecting to the school administration and management offices and housing the library and a new gymnasium linked to the pre-existing one.
The structure in the north-west of the site houses the new canteen/kitchen on the ground floor, with direct access to the exterior, and a group of classrooms on the upper floor that are directly connected to the other teaching areas.
The exterior spaces, which include an outdoor café area next to the snack bar, were redesigned with a view to improving accessibility, increasing the permeable surface area and tree coverage and regulating parking.
