The building consists of three different volumes: Primary Education, Pre-school and Gym. They are all arranged around a playground with an entrance, allowing them to operate independently. The main building has a double-storey central room opened to the outside, which can be used as an indoors playground and for extracurricular activities, and which looks for a breach with the typical alignment of rooms along a corridor. There are protection porches with recreational features due to their design and use of color. The pre-school building has its own outdoors playing zones, separate from the older students´. The gym is projected as an independent pavilion to be used out of the school´s timetable.
