Nursery School in Almacelles in Nebrija, Spain by B mes R 29 Arquitectes SLP
April 30th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal
Building consisting of an architectural design of three volumes: the main part contains their classrooms on three floors, two adjacent volumes separated by a small yard containing the polyvalent room, services and administration, connected to the main body of classrooms through a joint element that contains the bathrooms and storage.
Functionally the uses described are articulated through a longitudinal distribution corridor giving access to different areas and at the both ends contains the stairs.
The structure starts with an isolated foundation on caissons that support steel columns and concrete slab forged. The polyvalent room construction, is very high an large without columns, so it is solved with a metal truss system that support a steel decking forged.
The construction language and finishing’s of the building allows architectural reading of description of the beginning of this brief report. The highest volume is shown as a blunt piece of white stucco supported on a plinth made of Sant Vicenç stone, that links all three volumes and is complemented by the secondary unit finished with the same stone in “saw mode”. The global image of the set is defined by one of higlights elements of the building, the panels of directional louvers, which are very important in the external image, and give the building a light versatility and an interior-exterior relationship.
