Appreciation towards Gabriel Verd Arquitectos for providing the following description:

Santo Ángel de la Guarda高中一栋两层高的教学楼中仅设有一条楼梯,这意味着该栋教学楼中350名学生需要全部在该楼梯间内出入和通行。因此新楼梯间的补充变成了当务之急。在新楼梯的疏导下,学生的日常通行将更加便捷和通畅,新楼梯让学生穿行自如,避免了对教学楼内部其他功能空间的干扰,且可以直接抵达相对应的教室中。除此之外,新楼梯除满足日常通行需求功能之外,还需帮助建筑通风和采光,及满足防火功能。

Until now the high school pavilion had a single staircase to evacuate two floors of classrooms. 350 students who use it simultaneously in the hours of entry and exit. To this must be added that the main access to the school is done at the other side of the building, so that the students’ access to the high school classroom interfered with other internal uses of the school. The new staircase provides direct access to the classrooms and provide a second evacuation exit. This new staircase must be able to be used under adverse weather conditions satisfying at the same time the demands of ventilation, lighting, … required by fire regulations.

▼楼梯间与砖墙建筑彼此契合,the staircase is coupled to the brick construction


The structure is made of steel, facilitating prefabrication and subsequent assembly. As a coating, cellular polycarbonate panels have been used, arranged in flakes that give the whole its iconic image. A translucent, light and air permeable ICEBERG that is coupled to the brick construction, a new “peripheral device” that optimizes circulation through the main building. What were yesterday dark corridors are today luminous galleries, pure white and clear light that gives the reference to which guide the steps to the exit.
