Text description provided by the architects. The Omega Block Building, located in the Anglo Colombiano School, is the summary of three buildings in progression, which are adapted to the morphology of the triangular area disposed for its development.
A grand staircase, or tiered seating, ensures a fluid connection between the base plane (ground floor) with level above, while offering a congregational space. With this element, the scale of the building changes, and re-interprets the use of the atrium space.
The dominant materiality of the project, large format brick and slender pre-stressed concrete elements (beige in color), binds the outside spaces with that of the large internal atrium space. Further tonal and material compliment is found in the vibrant green special divisions (doors and divisions), with smooth Formica finish.
