Figueiró da Granja School
The project’s main goal was to rehabilitate and extend the Figueiró da Granja Primary School with a pre-primary classroom, in order to increase the scholar population and avoid the closure of the building.
Being it an historic building, with architectonic value and social affectivity, we proposed an entire restoration of the building’s original characteristics – it’s volumetric features and main architectonic details, such as window frames, masonries, roof tiles and woods – and the modernization of the infrastructures such as the heating system and ventilation system.
In the existing building we proposed the maintaining of one room as primary school and another as pre-primary school, as well as the teachers room.
In order to comply with contemporary school demands, a new volume in the back of the building will host the multipurpose room, as well as most of the technical areas required.
It’s spatial solution seeks a bigger flexibility, so it can host different uses by the community.
