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.
