The intervention consists on changing the current location of the artistic secondary school “Soares dos Reis” to the premises of the Secondary School Oliveira Martins. 

The existing space between the preserved volumes allowed for the addition of two new ones, these include Workshops, Library and Multi Purpose Class Room. These volumes are all connected by a distribution gallery, idealised as a “learning street”.

Access to the school is done via this gallery, which may have free or restricted access to certain areas, depending on the scheduled calendar.

The school entrance is marked by a new volume that creates a new covered outdoor area and also complements the existing body. This creates a renovated welcoming experience, as well as solves the nocturne degree entrance turn to the building.
