In no Man’s Land, in an aggressive environment surrounded by heavy traffic, heavy industry, along a poor neighborhood  on an old slag lies the plot of the school. There is a gap of almost four meters that will be used to protect the building from the noise of the highway A-92, providing adequate protection in addition to parents and students during the hours of entry and exit to the centre, keeping a safe distance from the busy roads surrounding the site.

The idea is to create a building following the Arabic-Andalusian tradition, leading the life of the edifice towards the interior, to liveable patios and portico galleries for circulation and staying. Fundamental was the distribution of uses, positioning all classrooms near to the quiet green areas, and other uses towards the exterior.

The three lineal parts which conforms the building, originate a U that encircles the central patio thought as infant playground. We tried to give an image of individualized architecture, reflecting its institutional character; the target was to offer a comfortable, happy and clean environment which contributes not only to facilitate teaching activities but at the same time to develop in students habits of cohabitation and good relation with scholar surroundings.
