The intervention in Dr. Joaquim de Carvalho Secondary School in Figueira da Foz was based on a desire that any new construction work would not superimpose itself on the existing buildings and that the current functional and formal system would be maintained.
The new construction consists of an interconnecting building that houses specific teaching spaces – laboratories and arts – and a low building that houses the programmes with a strong connection with the exterior, such as the multi-purpose hall, library and canteen/snack bar.
The existing building has retained its original functions, housing the classrooms on the two upper floors and the spaces dedicated to school management, teachers’ work and the New Opportunities Centre at the atrium level.
