CLIENT: Colegio Vizcaya
SERVICES: Architecture, Structure and MEP engineering projects. Interior design, Graphic design and Wayfinding design, Site Supervision and Turnkey Project.
The project stems from the school’s three basic needs: the design should have a short execution time, be economical and allow the construction of a roof garden.
The resulting dome-shape design adheres to this triple motive, plus a fourth more poetic reason: a cave as a secret place, a space that is present in so many stories of children’s imaginations.
The design proposal was to mainly use precast concrete, thus enabling the main structure to be built in two weeks.
