Enxaneta Primary School
BARCELONA SPAIN. 2009
The building is a result of the integration of PREINDUSTRIALIZIED MODULES, both across and lengthwise, already imposed from the beginning into the project, and the dimensions are stipulated by this modulation. There has been searched the MAXIMUM STANDARTIZATION of the project’s elements. However, although the prefabricated modules were taken, there has been searched, with collocation of these modules in DECALAGE, a singularity of this school. The composition quality comes from the richness of the double heights of the circulation spaces.
The resulting building is of rectangular shape. The school is organized by collocation of the infantile program on the ground floor and splitting that of the primary school between the first and the second floors. The infantile classrooms have their own exterior zone. It is a compact building that is integrated better into its CONTEXT as the extension of the yet existing school took place in this case.
The construction is completed within only 3 MONTHS, in a time when the
school is closed for holidays. The school is oriented towards North-South. The priority was to orient the classrooms towards the South. They are protected with lames and dispose of the crossed ventilation. We orient toward the North the block of installation, teacher’s rooms, the classrooms for the small groups and the audiovisual room and that of informatics. That’s to say, the rooms were not so much time is spent. Besides that, the classrooms dispose of the CROSSED
VENTILATION, and the access to them from central places has ventilation via chimney flue.
