Beautiful Roldan School Keeps Cool Under a Cover of Green
Posted By Tafline Laylin On July 13, 2011 @ 6:40 pm In Architecture,carousel showcase,gallery | 1 Comment
In order to accommodate new students, Huma Arquitectura relied on a horizontal plan of home-styled buildings linked together that can be easily expanded. The interior has been left quite raw, using less materials and creating a minimalist, industrial  feeling softened intermittently by stickers.
Play is important at Roldan. To make sure that the students are adequately protected during their recreational periods, Huma joined the edges of some of the delightful green buildings  together to create an interior courtyard. Although not all brands of Astroturf are equal, using this as opposed to real grass cuts down on both water use and maintenance.
