It is about the expansion and reconstruction of a high school in the municipality of Almeria known for its arid climate, desert-like landscapes and its proximity to the sea. The white color of the facade evokes the vernacular constructions on the Mediterranean shores. This organized facade is revitalized with the presence of a large reinforced concrete cantilever forming a porch that creates shaded areas for children to play on hot summer days.
The distribution of the spaces apart from complying with the demanding program of needs of a teaching center, facilitate the correct natural lighting and ventilation of all the classrooms. The projected passive shading systems have been considered as suitable for this type of construction and climate.
