LLUÍS COMPANYS HIGH SCHOOL IN TORDERA

Tordera. Barcelona / 1988-1992

 

Located in the outskirts of a small industrial city, the building closes itself surrounding a green courtyard that contains all the internal corridors. The school set is square shaped, formed with an undifferentiated 7 by 4 m grid of pillars. Two modules project towards the exterior to form the janitor's house and the boiler room. Between the two differentiated facades, the one forming the external perimeter, which is almost blind and closed, and the interior one which opens towards the internal green courtyard, the internal units are organized on an arbitrary setting of the floor and the ceiling, which creates unexpected superpositions in every office or classroom.
