From the architect. For the design of the building used an organizational scheme directly related to the structural pattern of the territory, more specifically with the existing tree structure, which is respected and  cherished by the community.

Not only are there courtyards,  but, associated with each valence is an outdoor space, which will allows the children to enjoy the space safely and autonomously, and includes handicapped access.

The  services that students and teachers use more frequently are organized in a central location along the building's axis. From that body / central axis, develops a longer, winding route, with access facilities for people with disabilities by means gently sloping ramps where necessary.
