PaRK International School Alfragide
Multifunctional spaces that are open to the community
In an extensive intervention area, the new PaRK International School Complex is characterized by the occupation of several volumes along the platforms created as a strategy of territorial domination. The programme covers the totality of the pedagogical cycles, framed in four nuclei: kindergarten, primary school, secondary school and pavilion with outside areas for the practice of sports.
Characterized by a long-line volumetry, the bodies compete with the horizontality of the adjacent road, and are counteracted by the vertical dynamics of the façade, created to control sun exposure.
The geometry of the ensemble provides informal meeting spaces and offers wide access to the open air.
The result is a school landscape composed of children and adolescents, in flexible spaces, capable of adapting in time, multifunctional spaces open to the community, essential for the regeneration of the local urban fabric, offering students and the academic team a complete, distinctive and innovative experience.
