The site for this highschool rests on the border between a consolidated area to the north built in the 60s and a very recent residential development still under consolidation. This new development tips the existing balance shifting the demographical weight of the neighborhood towards the south. The building recognizes this new situation placing the building in the highest point of the site, constructing the whole of its longest side and placing the main entrance also open to the south. Its public character and its role as an urban milestone are thus reinforced. Typologically the building is based on a compact layout with spaces on both sides of a central corridor. This basic layout is broken at certain points to connect the corridor with the outside and let light in, creating spaces that double as meeting areas. The main entrance is a major disruption of the basic layout, also morphologically, in a way that is capable of connecting the street outside with the green areas inside.
