The rectangular-shaped (almost square) floorplan direct us to grouped functions and keep control of each type of visitors in the school. The main concept rotates around a striped-wood main core area. We aim to provide a unique yet functional wooden core serving all the horizontal and vertical circulations and offering diagonal views for children to play safely.

All the rest of the education center remains simple white spaces giving all the attention to the central wooden space. Materiality and colors had been carefully selected to offer the most optimal conditions for these children to thrive.
