Construction of a new building, which will function as the new school entrance, taking advantage of its location and configuration to serve as a connection between the existing buildings. This new block will incorporate common spaces, allowing for a greater integration and interaction between the various school users, thus creating a new centrality.

Apart from the administrative and executive spaces, this building will include the new library and resource center and other support spaces for the schooling community such as a convenience store, the copy centre, the students’ association and a snack bar that will complement the current cafeteria.

The school's central atrium is a large space with natural light, serving as a meeting point for the entire school community. Spatial features are enhanced by the paintings produced by the school students.

Both projects are by BFJ Arquitectos and are part of an extensive public secondary school renovation programme implemented in Portugal, which included the complete remodelling of over 330 schools nationwide.
The project published last week was a high-school in the city of Beja, located 300kms South of this high-school, which is in Leiria.
Unfortunately, initially some of the images and the Google map on that post was wrong since it did show this site.
