QUINTA DO PERU HIGH SCHOOL
The goal is to transform Quinta do Peru Secondary School into a building/transition between Quinta do Conde’s urban fabric and the extensive pine forest located south of the project area.
The building plan sets the limit to the north and west urban fabric, and frees the ground when facing east and south.
The structuring axis of the building is a north-south gallery, 150 metres long and 6 metres wide with variable heights. This Inner Street is the central area of the school and follows the terrain’s slope through ramps with a soft 5% inclination.
The Inner Street, with variable heights, enables a direct access to the several school areas, such as classrooms and workshops.
A planted area was created in the plot, merging the pine forest. In the park area, between the tree areas we propose a pathway that creates an extension to the different activities taking place inside the school, such as sports, educational or recreational activities.
