The customer had to cover a game space within a school environment characterized by the existence of a terraced solar.
Given this context the architects decided to create an iconic volume, attractive from different points of view, through a mixed structure of concrete pillars and beams able to save the 35 meters of light needed.
The structure is covered with a facade of perforated and painted metal sheets that filter the light into the new space, creating pleasant and soft lighting effects to create an open and liveable space while making a point of reference for the school visible from all points near the place.
