2017 – 2020
This project responds to a simple need: the connection between two existing blocks of classrooms. This vertical and horizontal relations are the pretext to create a space of encounter and relaxation for the students during breaks, as well as an exterior amphitheatre.
The original set of buildings is confuse, with various additions throughout the years. This intervention intends to detach itself and respect the individuality of the existing buildings, twisting and squirming in order to avoid them. The windows created are frames to the best things the surroundings have to offer: a forest and a magnolia of white flowers.
