This High School building completes the group of classroom-buildings; therefore it resumes the usual typology of the surroundings, a central open space with peripheral classrooms. It’s also chosen to use brick walls, the predominate material of the school.

The particular variation of the building, consists in developing a sinuous atrium with an internal garden. The exterior was defined by two closed sides facing the large green extensions, and by two glass façades with vertical sun shields where the classrooms operate.
