Text description provided by the architects. The project area is a plot behind a nursery school, alongside an area which will become a public park, located in a disorganised residential area.

Ground Floor Plan
Ground Floor Plan

The functional program, aimed at disabled persons, features primary and complementary activities – classrooms and workshops – conceived as the structures which are essential to the conduction of the socio-educational activities associated with the presence of disabled persons.

The project forms a special relationship with the surroundings, hypothesizing a park accessible by a wheelchair user because the trees “perforate” a sill in smooth concrete, the pavement of this kind of artificial forest.

The area has thus been redesigned as the natural continuation of the park, which bends to form the architectural volume whose sill is transformed from pavement to roof.

 One façade is thus open while the other is closed with the exception of the cut which defines the entrance, which can be reached by a ramp accessible to vehicles. The rectangular plan develops along the corridor communicating with the various rooms, which are also connected externally by a covered path.
