The Panamerican School of Porto Alegre is an international school with approximately 400 students. In recent years, with a prospect of increasing enrollments, a master plan was drawn up by the North American office H2L2, a specialist in educational architecture. Santini and Rocha Arquitetos was contracted to develop the architectural projects and adapt the master plan for effective use. Several architectural projects of renovation and expansion were carried out. The COLABS project is one of these projects, contemplating classrooms, open and covered areas and a terrace. In this project, 3 large classrooms with laboratory format were constructed, each room with approximately 100.00 m2. These rooms allow more than one class to develop activities and more than one learning model to be developed. This footage is roughly double the amount of footage normally used in classrooms in Brazil.
