Text description provided by the architects. Reuse: Reuse requires the reading of what the  history is leaving, and that has to be done each time in shorter time intervals, recognize a structure reinventing a way to inhabit it, reveal its qualities, understand its purpose and decide how to transform.

Program: Adaptation of the school program at today's education requirements. the fundamental themes are: the school opened to the community, the school as a space of freedom for children.
