The terrain is divided into two different zones:

  1. The original area of Ernesto Pinto´s School, placed in the lower zone of the terrain, this zone has a big presence towards the city.
  2. The other area is placed in the upper zone of the terrain, this zone gives to the building a great position to watch the landscape.

The building keeps the original access area improving its urban presence, this area contains : the access hall, administrative area and library. In this area is also the pre kinder volume, close to the parental access.

In the upper zone are placed are placed all the typical programs of a school, there take place pupil´s activities from 1° to 8° basic degree. This area counts with parking for massive events, gym, canteen, classrooms, ateliers, and laboratories.

The expresion  of  southern architecture are basically barns, houses and southern country houses, whom are constantly present in the zone landscapes. They shape a simple and functional volume, protecting their inhabitants of weather inclement.  With a verydefined scale, lineal and concentrated. These characteristics give the building a clear reference to be understood as a contemporary regional architecture example.

One of the main characteristics of how buildings gather in southern Chile in rural areas, is the random way they get located in landscapes.

This building is projected like a group of 4 buildings that have different programs: Access, classrooms, gym and meeting rooms. Volumes are oriented depending on the views of the landscapes, north and protecting itself from wind and rain.

The inside space are solved too with solutions based in traditional architecture.  Galleries  as an expression of sustainable architecture,  they either generate intermediate spaces that face the sight of local landscapes, and also create indoor courtyard that pupils use as a warm and cozy area, furthermore this galleries act as an bioclimatic element open to the north with windows to caths light and heat in winter and natural ventilation in summer.
