Project realized with Albert Vitaller Santiró. Renovation of a ground floor and two floors school to adapt it to the criteria established for the construction of buildings of public teaching centers. As a result a gym and a new kitchen are built, an elevator and an evacuation ladder are placed from the deck to comply with accessibility. The center had a very small multipurpose room and a kitchen and dining room that did not serve the number of children in the center.There was a courtyard at lower level with respect to the patio, with the respective problem of accessibility and danger due to the great unevenness, so it was decided to cover the sunken courtyard with land and build the new gym parallel to the building of the classrooms and thus allow the construction of a new covered porch for rainy days.
