From the architect. The project fits the given program in one, single building set at the edge of the plot of land. The building is a single volume, composed of a serial repetition of simple elements. The traditional typology is here characterized by the raising of the complex on a platform and the space below answers the necessity of parking spaces and different storage.

The cover space is marked by the way to the parking entrance and, along the West side, by a second entrance for loading trucks and its flexibility for use is outstanding; it offers more outdoor cover spaces than originally requested, that could be used for many activities. The access to the platform is simple, three ramps are located next to the laboratory entrances that lead to the upper level. On the North side a freight lift for goods and disabled people can be found.

The volume containing the workrooms and teaching rooms is designed to be simple, flexible, and functional. Somewhat like an industry building where students and teachers can experience a professional environment. The big north-facing sheds guarantee the perfect light for any training activity and the closed working spaces help capture the attention.
