The school setting allows a close relationship with nature, located in the countryside, the new primary school + kindergarten is surrounded by beautiful adult trees.

The proposal explores the relations between inside and outside through two systems that will define the spatial organization of the school: in the classrooms, an atmosphere of concentration is sought, so the large windows open to gaps, like private courtyards, providing controlled natural light and diagonal views to the surroundings.

In the common zones the opposite happens: direct and frontal views, large perspective fields in all directions as well as plenty of natural light in the corridors.
