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 existing prefab pavilions were demolished and the overall school space was reorganised through the erection of a new two-storey structure linked to the existing building and the extension of former gymnasium space and its conversion into a workshop area. The new structure defines a new entrance to the school that directly connects to the school administration and management offices in the old building and houses the library, multipurpose hall and support spaces for pupils on the ground floor and classrooms and laboratories on the first floor. The new teaching spaces are directly connected to the other teaching spaces.
The exterior spaces were redesigned with a view to improving accessibility, increasing the permeable surface area and tree coverage and regulating parking.
