Sant Gregori School

Barcelona, Spain
1 of 17Jose Hevia

The commission focused on the reform, improvement, and extension of the existing facilities from 1972. The extension will include, an underground parking, 6 kindergarten classrooms, 6 additional primary level classrooms and a new elementary school of music with its 300 seats auditorium which will also be a Gymnasium for the entire school. The practice also pushed to create polivalent spaces and using the resulting rooftops as playgrounds.

The building was rated A-level energy wise. All the southern exposure of the classrooms is protected by overhangs and/or a brise-soleil of pine-wood sections. In a similar fashion, the basketball court is wrapped in a galvanized Rivisa steel mesh that will allow vegetation to climb and create an appropriate shadow for the playground.
