Designed by Arqtel, Primary School construction-savvy design is located in Les Cabanyes, Spain. This bright primary school by design studio Arqtel generates a dialogue with its surroundings not only through its spatial composition and architectural tectonics but also through its volumetric orientation. As a result, the building optimises functional programme at the same time as it focuses on aspects of light, orientation and the quality of the spaces generated.
Retaining a telluric presence, the building brings a sense of order to the site and acts as a landmark among surrounding buildings and fields. Its north-south longitudinal axis opens up in a circulation pattern resembling a comb, alternating playfully between filled and empty spaces that characterise the whole. The stratification of the facades realises an intention to create a modern and dynamic presence.
