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 through the construction of a split-level building that follows the slop of the site and houses the laboratories on its two floors. Due to this new structure’s plan and layout, it serves as a link between the main building and workshop block. The canteen/kitchen areas were also extended and the support and socialising spaces were reorganised around a covered patio adjacent to the new library.
The sports facilities were renovated, including the construction of new changing/shower rooms and a competition-sized covered games field. The exterior spaces were redesigned with a view to increasing the permeable surface area and tree coverage and regulating parking.
