Project Description

(Text as submitted by the Architect)

The school is located near the center of Taipas village, in an already consolidated urban area and it was built from another existing school that was completely demolished.

In that sense, the proposed intervention aimed not only at replacing the old school facilities, built on a totally dysfunctional scheme, which for a long time had ceased to meet the minimum conditions for teaching and learning, but also proposing the requalification and planning of all the space within the boundaries of the terrain, with the design of its exterior spaces, new playing fields, garden areas or even new areas for students’ recreation, establishing new relationships with their surroundings.
