Following the client's brief, the project strives for programme clarity and rationality on several levels: a clear definition of construction phases with no interruption of educational process during second phase construction, a rational concept of volume composition with appropriate orientation and height of 2 -3 levels. Compact composition also ensures lower foundations cost and lower running costs.
Composition consists of four volumes, two comprising educational spaces, the third common spaces, management and library, the fourth volume is the gym. Complex is envisioned as a cubic composition, programme divisions are perceived intuitively - the building defines itself. Facade system of the educational volumes is defined by accentuated horizontals of window openings; in the communication area rhythm of alternating transparent and opaque panels follows the direction of movement along the volume.
Three points connect the school to the access road. Principal square platform is paved, with a large tree and green areas next to the buildings: it represents the primary contact urban area with the school. Access for first triennium is arranged as a recess with parking spaces, where parents can safely bring and escort children to the school entrance. A separate access is arranged to the service courtyard, hidden behind a hedge.
Sports grounds with football/basketball courts and a running track are arranged at the southern side of the complex. Green areas and trees surround the volumes and recreational areas, with a large grove serving as a barrier between sports areas and the street.
