Talavera de la Reina | 2005-2009

It is a Secondary School in Talavera de la Reina, located very close to the cable-stayed bridge built by ESTUDIO AIA.

The project arises from the rational postulates of internal uses and circulations. The operation, the economy of spaces, the relationship between spaces of similar use and the non-interference of different activities are prioritized, combining economic and low maintenance solutions. Clear separation between the different functional areas, common, administrative and teaching spaces.

Sharp premises direct the design process:

Solution of the specific functional program.

Formal proposal.

  • White primary volumes.
  • Extensive, disaggregated, organic, low-density building.
  • Mastery of horizontality in composition.
  • Sequential walkthrough of different open and closed spaces generating a succession of different perceptions. “Architectural walk”.
  • The white wall and steel. The solution of solar protection. Perforated micro sheet.
  • Views of the Sierra de Gredos mountains and the cable-stayed bridge designed by Estudio AIA.
