The school extends across the plot horizontally, on one floor, in such a way that all of the teaching spaces are connected to patios and gardens, establishing a rich spatial continuity between interior and exterior. The building is a continuous roof, which is condensed in the north and frees as much space as possible to the south where the schoolyard opens to the horizontal passage of fields and orchards.
All general classrooms are southeast facing where sunlight is ideal for educational activity and optimal for learning. Theoretical general classrooms, where both primary and nursery school children spend most of their time, benefit from the southeast orientation.
"As in the acquisition of knowledge, the sense of space is a universal dimension of our minds. The surprising alliance of space and learning is something we cannot resist." Herman Hertzberger
