Text description provided by the architects. LEARNING BY PLAYING

The project consists of a one story building at street level.

The site is influenced by two conditions that have been key aspects in the development of the project. In the first place the closeness to a highspeed traffic way, in Pio Baroja Avenue, and in the second place the remarkable height of the surrounding buildings. This took us to create a building focused on its inner court.

The floor plan of the building is split into three different volumes

Main issues developed in the project:

Double circulation: interior/exterior, taking advantage of the local climatology, going around the school playing

Good orientation aswell as cross ventilation in all rooms, which implies important energy savings.

Flexibility in the rooms in terms of mobile walls joining in packs of three units.

Constructive simplicity
