The proposal takes shape with the transversal aerial display of a thin rectangular prism, inserted among the back faces of the buildings which primarily define the site.
A double fold in that laminar figure rises interposing between those and the produced space.
The fold corresponding to the original school building respectfully draws back regarding its rank, assuming a condition of framing to highlight its appearance, decisively taking its place at the plaza, whereas the folding on the great party-wall of the housing building clings to it as a big technologic scaffold facing south, hosting the technical facilities and installations of the complex.
The whole main plan on the first floor, as both volumetric highlights, is directly linked to the original building at its first story, and by means of the communication nucleus which serves both, plus the ramp displayed at the opposite angle, serving the first floor, ground floor and a lower basement floor under the playground (refectory and nursery rooms). The second story at the back of the original building contents administration and docent staff facilities.
