Designed for 500 students aged 14-17 years old, the school stands on an area of ​​130,000 m2 in Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro. The project includes, in addition to classrooms and accommodation areas for students and teachers, various common buildings: restaurant, library, administration, amphitheater, sports complex and a 600-seat theater.

The campus is built around a lake and is surrounded by peripheral internal roads and bike paths. Ecological care is widely considered in the development of infrastructure projects and landscaping, with the inclusion of green roofs and water reuse systems.
