Complete renovation, wooden structural extensions on brick ensemble, green roofs to harvest rainwater, windmills and solar chimneys to light and provide natural ventilation.

Classrooms are upstairs; the architecture brings in natural light, allowing for use of underground levels (-5 m) of the old building.
