The program comes complete with one music and one psychomotor rooms.

The existing building dates from 1980 and was designed by architect Manuel Portaceli. It is a quadrangular prism with the portal frame marking composition. The architects partially empty the volume while they preserve the rest of the structure, a solution reminiscent of the work of Terragni in Como (Italy).
