The building is structured following an alternate sequence of predominatly linear volumes which house the rooms to use, and narrow bands created for circulation or as an increase of those rooms. The former have barrel vault roofs and the latter flat vaults in order make the proposal clearer. The tangential movement of these pieces allows the creation of a central room, like an indoors playground. The entrance opens directly to this playground, also tangentially, due to the topography and the road conditions. The pre-school rooms can be used independently. The volumes are added from the first floor bib, using solutions in the metal, integrated chromatically , contrasted in the brick baseboard; the color is also used in the inside elements.
