The genesis was a restructuring project for a school made up of featureless, scattered constructions located in a rundown neighbourhood. A new identity was created and the existing buildings were remodelled to meet new functional demands. The exterior image was also redesigned and a new element introduced. A robust volumetric presence in white, precast concrete, whose scale is in rapport with the city, the building sets a new boundary for the school, separating students from the immediate surroundings and apartment buildings located nearby.
