In a first volume of ground floor, in continuity with the primary yard, lie the nursery and primary hallways and all support units of the school. The classrooms are designed as a three-storey volume in which children's classrooms, oriented south, have direct contact with its own patio with a porch and elementary classrooms located in first and second floor, which is accessed by a corridor oriented south, north facing light comes from. A ceramic lattice acts as protection for passive solar south facing corridors giving access to primary classrooms.
