Text description provided by the architects. This new school was planned on the footprint of previous buildings in poor condition and on low resistance soil. This required us to erect single-story buildings located on the most stable strip of land and also maintain the existing sports field slabs.

They both use the same constructive system of concrete portals, function in a similar fashion, and have concrete block walls and open corridors separated from the play area by the growth of climbing plants. From a distance, these buildings function as landmarks in the café landscape.
