It is the refurbishment of the ancient can rosés “masia” (farmhouse) as a temporary school, for a period of 3 years. The building had been renovated for a municipal library more than 20 years before. The interior spaces were diaphanous.
The temporary use of the building is for a period of 3 years. For students of 3, 4 and 5 years old. After this period, the temporary school will be disassembled.
It is an alternative pilot test to prefabricated modules, which are a common system in similar temporary situations. In
order to take advantage of disused buildings, we obtain lower investment cost and greater character and identity for the
The space is occupied by wooden division walls, with a modular design by 2cm thick pine wood slats, to be able to be
manufactured and assembled quickly.
On the ground floor, the reception areas and the administration office, the dining room and a multipurpose room. The
stage of it is placed in the center of the floor, and articulates all the spaces around.
On the first and second floors, two classrooms at the edges and a free space in between, for indeterminate uses that
promote the application of new pedagogies and shared education between classrooms.
The temporary occupation of the building also required a playground, which was obtained by occupying the sidewalk in
front of the building. A fence has been placed, done with a galvanized steel mesh, as transparent as possible. It is fixed
to masonry benches that work as a foundation. These benches activate uses, both in the playground and in the
sidewalk. Part of the “enclosed” sidewalk has been depaved, generating spaces with permeable floors that we hope will
end up being left once the fence is dismantled.
