The parcel forms a right-angled triangle. As if it were a child’s game, its design plays with this shape, on top of the leg that adjoins an eight-storey block (yet unbuilt), the “servant spaces” are concentrated along an elongated section.
The corridor and classrooms run parallel to it. To adapt it to the site, one of the classrooms is rotated until it rests on the hypotenuse, whilst the other two are located along the other leg. The rest of the triangle is left as an outdoor playground and garden.
This geometric interplay has a volumetric interpretation; the classrooms, which open out towards the playground, appear to be boxes with sloping roofs over the flat roof of the rest. Basic colours are used as the \”material\” from which all the façades are created.
