The main remodelling is done in the old brick building. Although formally it is a single building, the problem was that in terms of operation and organization functions works as two.

In the main building, classrooms are very well arranged, oriented toward the south also have cross ventilation. The terraces doesn´t work only as connection but also as sun protection.

The internal organization of this building has been completely changed, needed news stairs, lift-elevator, new wc… and needed to change the old  distribution because it had the problem that only on the ground floor functioned as a single unit while the top floor functioned as two separate areas.

It also changes the main entrance of the Centre, is disposed now under the shadow of three large pine trees that provides protection at the entrance of the students.

The new gym is located at the southeast corner of the lot and it´s connecting to the main building through a new pergola.  Special care has been taken in the ventilation inside the gym getting it through the chimney effect induced in the double layer of the large windows.

The technical characteristics that assure adequate durability at minimal cost of conservation are considered for the choice of materials and installations.

Every space has direct natural light and ventilation. Every space avoids long paths and ensures visual integration of all interior spaces of the building.
