The Valencian practice of Alberto Peñín has built this public school for the kindergarten, primary, and secondary levels in Fuente Encarroz, a small town in the comarca of Safor, 6 kilometers from Gandía.
The program is spread on plan on a large site between farmland and a mixed urban fabric, and is held together by a route which organizes the communal zones of the primary and preschool centers through voids, exterior and interior walkways, and contrasts set at different levels and heights. To minimize its visual impact on the place, the larger volumes are embedded in the topography. Textures, contrasts, and abstractions combine in pursuit of architectural objectives, transferring the fretwork of local agricultural constructions to school that has a built area of 5,511 square meters. The project also provides the town with new facilities: a multipurpose hall, a gym, and a Valencian pelota court, each with its own entrance.
