The proposal aims at the resolution of an adecuate school architecture while defining the urban space where it is to be set. At present, this area is defined by a surrounding of different alignments, complex volumes and building heights.
The competition entry proposes a linear building, leaned on the San Ildefonso Street, in the southeast, shaping the street space as a new school square.
It values the importance that the public scale grants to the place, thus creating a new urban site.
An emphatic construction, in two floors, houses the whole functional program in two parallel buildings allowing a wide and well defined playing ground space between the school block and the existing pavilion.
