A compact, sober piece, which one seeks to adapt to the local scale.
A civic center that pivota about an emptiness to double height; the foyer like heart of the building, place of meeting, of stay in the steps stairs, of access to the different spaces: room, computer science of multiple uses, general bathroom and offices in the ground floor.
Also they find in this plant the facilities, though with independent access. Independence of the one that also enjoys the room of multiple uses; well to use her of isolated form or as access of service. In the first plant, library and classrooms.
Walls of load of termoarcilla seen, whitewashed in the interior; texture and warmth. Horizontal flagstones of slate in the exterior, economy of means and maintenance. Solados also of slate in access and traffics, of wood in the room, linoleum arrives. Some paraments of carton plaster, some that another false ceiling. Carpentry of aluminium bronze in the exterior, wood in the interior.
