Paredes School

This project is a two-storey school center that arises as a rehabilitation of a pre-existing structure, which is expanded in order to meet the needs and programmatic space, with the addition of three volumes.

It reveals special care in a new image adoption as a keen sense of the intervention’s adequacy of the scale. Building a overall and unity sense based on the volume’s steering ratio, which spatial feelings is characteristic of the intervention. The volumetric composition based on an image of pure juxtaposed masses and volumes associated with the articulation of the exterior horizontal planes creates a stimulant profile.

The uniformity logic of the exterior cladding-ribbed plate, a material associated with an industrial image, which, in a certain way suggests or recalls the manufacturing local tradition – assumes a continuity between facade and roof, and it turns out to be quite remarkable in the language definition of this work.
