The story of the curve that conquered the aisle. Innovation is the adaptive response to a changing environment. The project developed for the Limonar School was based on the premise of a change: the desire to give shape to an educational project through space. The classrooms, located along the corridor, were projected with an original design, playing with materials and colors. Everything was woven in a plot of curves and versatile furniture elements. In the central area the toilet and water cores were installed, integrating in a functional way and even standing out as a useful and necessary element, almost playful, because the same water basin can be accessed from both outside and inside the core, a somewhat unique detail for the little ones. We also opened up to the outside, where the courtyard became an extension of the classroom. The different pavements, shaded areas and play structures now organize the recesses.
The guiding element of the project, the corridor, usually conceived as a purely linear component, reached in this project a much broader dimension. Not only with the curve, but also thanks to the transparency of the classrooms towards it and the incorporation of different elements that give it its own value, becoming both a transit element and a space for socializing, a meeting and interaction space. The design through the curve is what has allowed us to give volume to that line.
The final result is a small ecosystem within the school itself. Where light, transparency, colors, curves, inside-outside interaction, furniture and technology give the classrooms flexibility, coherence, originality and functionality.
