The project of the new Liceo proposes a simple geometry. It is a reinterpretation of the typical gabled roof of the architecture of Araucanía. The use of wood in the interior emphasizes the regional character of the building.
It is a compact space that divides the program into two: educational and sporting. Easy execution allows standardization of the construction process. The geometry of the building, the sequence of gabled roofs, and the different levels of the wings make it possible to identify the uses that each part of the Liceo hosts.
The renewal of natural indoor air and the orientation play a major role in the energy efficiency of the building.
The programmatic organization of the project responds to the natural movement of the sun and the occupancy distribution of the center throughout the day.
