The overall volume of the project consists of two bodies joined together, characterized by a pitched roof, a total of about 1.170 square meters of SUL. Those two volumes define an external space behind the internal viability; moreover, both sides of the school on the internal front are qualified by a portico that gently shades the south-facing classrooms. The color palette contains tones of blue and gray that convey calm, tranquility and serenity. The choice of natural materials qualify the architecture as fully integrated into the urban context in which it is located. The principal entry was concepited as a small winter garden, a place where the didactic environment and the surrounding scenery meets. An eco-sustainable architecture that brings the landscape inside the building, helping to strengthen the relationship between construction and nature.
