The new Primary School building Errekabarri will cover the Primary Education Centre located in Álava. The project is based on the differentiation of accesses and pedestrian circuits and rounds, as well as the area of Infant and Primary Education. The T-shaped form allows a lobby and main core of centralized communications, which guarantees routes and services optimized.
The linear arrangement achieves the greatest use of the volume to be built, controlled natural lighting and cross ventilation in all spaces. The courtyards have been optimally oriented and differentiated proportionately between Kindergarten and Primary Education. Another important point has been the limitation of the presence of the two blocks of houses to be built on the adjacent plots.
The space distribution on the Ground Floor is divided between: Infant Education, Primary Gymnasium area, Outdoor Spaces, Administration Zone, Common Services and Complementary Spaces. In the First Floor, however, we only find the Primary area.
