The intervention carried out on Macedo Fragateiro Secondary School in Ovar consisted in the construction of a new central body, which, with the aid of passageways, unites in physical and functional terms all the other remodelled volumes.
This new building now provides the entrance to the school, opening up onto a large distribution and socialisation space. Along this space there are the multi-purpose hall, the library, the canteen and the students’ snack bar. In addition to these functions, the building houses the school administrative offices, the New Opportunities Centre, the staff room, training room, students’ association and school shop.
Existing volumes A and B were remodelled, with volume A now housing most of the classrooms and volume B containing essentially laboratory spaces. The workshop nucleus was remodelled and extended and now houses the workshops for mechanics, electricity and electronics and the arts.
The multi-sports pavilion was built next to this new body and houses changing rooms, gymnastics hall and complementary spaces.
