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 three new volumes built that interconnect with the existing structures: a central body positioned longitudinally along the main front of the school and linking to the former multipurpose pavilion, forming a patio/square and housing the administrative/management offices, library, multipurpose hall and museum space, canteen/snack bar, pupils’ recreation spaces, ICT room and support auditorium; a support body for physical education equipped for the sport of fencing; and a reception/doorman body.
The exterior spaces, which include a covered area underneath the central body, were redesigned with a view to improving accessibility, increasing the permeable surface area and tree coverage and regulating parking. A general geo-thermal ventilation system with underground installations was installed that allows for thermal control with minimum energy consumption.
