The design proposes a series of sensorial and non-linear set of interconnected spaces through which children can explore, hide and seek. Classrooms are surrounded by carefully defined outdoor areas that are tied together by a large pergola that lets the nature in. The design essentially fuses program and environment, rendering the project itself a central part of the educational program.
