The construction of the School consists of a single linear building where the child can complete all stages of  education  until high school; the allocation of classes on the basis of age and the subsequent linear progress through the building, favors the use of the center and takes maximum advantage of the restricted size of  the plot.

Since it is situated at the edge of the city this linear building forms a boundary line between the city and farmland.

    The uniqueness of this building, in my opinion, lies in the continuity and the linearity of the building, it gives the affect of “never ending” as a result of engaging it with the surrounding landscape in a stripe form that gives the building a vanishing point appeal. the use of this material gives it an extra credit, where this smooth-dark cladding that contrasts the greenery of the landscape and the sky enhance the whole look, giving it elegant and sophisticated semblance.
