The building sets in the largest  and main front  of the land with a 4 floor volumen that occupies most of the front. So this the school gets a leading role within the immediate scale and communal context.


The horizontality of the building gives consistent proportions to set with the vertical rhythm induced by the inner yards partitions. Microwell shades and concrete are the ritmical elements of the school, these two materials are the spatial characteristic of the building. Using live colours  in Windows and shades the building gets an urban identity and presence
