Liceo Franco Mexicano is an elementary school located in the west part of Mexico, in the state of Jalisco. This school decided to expand their installations, so that they can provide new spaces for special activities for kids from 3 to 6 years old. To achieve this goal, we decided to use all the materials from the site. So that we could appreciate a vernacular architecture without leaving behind innovation. That’s why the constructive system is based in rammed earth walls formed by modules of 8 x 8m. By the way they are placed, sometimes they confine new spaces.
It was very important to us, that the kids were able to interact with nature, that’s why you can find different colors, textures and landscape all over the project. The concept of this project is to create flexible spaces, giving the opportunity to change the spatial configuration. This is how you can experience a direct connection with the outside and every module is open to a patio. The central tree plays a very important role because it connects all the spaces giving a different and innovative place for the kids to learn.
