From across the road, the building appears as a solid rock built from concrete with stones projecting different scales of gray along with ash colored perforated and corrugated metal sheets, while the single story façade facing the forest is a transparent and permeable body.
Overall, the project involves an intervention where new objects are differentiated from the old ones, encouraging the contrast between them and revitalizing some who had fallen into oblivion.
The new building is formed from the interaction of the formal and spatial elements that configure the place historical memory with the new requirements and the demands of contemporary language.
For the construction of the building we use industrial processes in order to minimize the execution time and the interference with the normal development of the school. The project aims to qualify the building with the careful treatment of the natural light, the crossed ventilation and through the value given to the structural and constructive solutions used.
The space where the project was developed belongs to the foundation vault of the Forum Provincial Romà. It was a narrow space and uncomfortable for visitors who wished to contemplate the exposed pieces. The room is called La Volta de La Tecleta and it also had an accessibility handicap; the access to the room was located in a lower level than the public toilets and the only way of arriving was by a stair.
