Text description provided by the architects. The design of this Nursery School in Alamcelles consists of three volumes: the main part contains classrooms on three floors, the two adjacent volumes, separated by a small yard, contain the multipurpose room, services and administrative offices. These are connected to the main body of classrooms through a joint element that contains the bathrooms and storage.

Functionally the uses described are articulated through a longitudinal distribution corridor that gives access to different areas. This corridor is book ended by staircases. The structure starts with an isolated foundation on caissons that support steel columns and a concrete slab. The multipurpose room is constructed by and large without columns, so it is solved with a metal truss system that supports steel decking.

The construction language and finishing of the building allows an architectural reading of the three separate volumes. The highest volume is shown as a blunt piece of white stucco supported on a plinth made of Sant Vicenç stone, that links all three volumes and is complemented by the secondary unit finished with the same stone in "saw mode". The global image of the set is defined by one of highlights elements of the building, the panels of directional louvers, which are very important in the external image, and give the building light versatility and an interior-exterior relationship.
