Colegio Villa El Sol in El Bosque, Chile by GUBBINS ARQUITECTOS

The project is located on a site with a special feature; it is 25 meters wide and 100 meters deep, which allows us to develop a 4-storey building occupying almost the entire ground surface. This gives the project a protagonist scale in the neighborhood.

The strategy to not “keep” the dimensions of the property (pre-existing length and width), was to organize the program of the school within a large regular volume, based on a double bay corridor, alternating classrooms and playgrounds in different levels and on both sides of the central circulation. This allowed us to open cross perspectives on the site, with views of the mountains and the sunset.

Given the north-south orientation of the site, we designed a structural facade system based on U-shaped walls, allowing a depth for sun protection from the east and west. This also generates a base system for interior furnishings in the classrooms, and a rhythm between masonry and concrete walls that display the length and height of the final volume.
