A ground floor building is accessed through a porch, an extension of two rows of existing trees that are preserved. It is a unitary volume of 22x51 meters aligned with the existing pedestrian walkway that joins the various surrounding school facilities.

The program is distributed on both sides of a central strip formed by the waiting room, in clearly differentiated areas for appointments, administration, restricted areas, and facilities.

Two patios illuminate the center of the building, allowing light and direct views of the outside from the common spaces and waiting rooms.

All the rooms for continuous use have natural light, and the health education classroom opens onto a landscaped patio protected from views.

Placing the building at the bottom of the plot creates an entrance square with a parking area and makes the building easily expandable.

The modulation of the spaces makes it possible to have a modular structure of pillars, beams, and concrete slabs.

The facade combines textured in-situ concrete with a ceramic ventilated facade, and the interiors are ceramic tile and OSB, with a textured surface so that the environment changes subtly according to the light of each hour of the day.

The roof is ventilated, finished with prefabricated stone, providing good thermal and acoustic insulation, while it can be considered a fifth façade, visible from various points near the building.
