Collaboration with Jarlath Cantwell & Ori Merom

The ambition of the Cascais School Building project is not only to create a smart receptacle for learning, but also to blend in the urban fabric in a relevant way. All the elements of the project are present somewhere in the town: The corridor surrounding all functions is designed like the old city streets, the indoor and outdoor paved floors remind the Portuguese praça, the overall volumetry has the qualities of a real city block. Simplicity, flexibility and functionality.
