The project arises from an open
competition (in the form of restricted competition of ideas), to which the
office republica_dm is invited by the organizing entity, the “Public Office of
Educational Services and Infrastructure” of the Ministry of Education of the Government
The building responds to the required program, “child
center and primary school_c2”, adapted both to the geomorphological conditions
of the site (with significant slopes), as well as to its urban conditions.
We respond to the program by proposing three
“basic volumes” that adjust to a phased construction.
The implantation of the buildings is intended to
set free the central spaces, destined for the students’ play area, so that the
teaching, administration, and complementary spaces are located at the limit
allowed by the urban conditions (distance from facades). The administration and
complementary spaces make up the north facade, laid out parallel to the
secondary street (with south facing sea views), whereas the child center is
parallel to one of the back facades (the northern boundary).
