Extending into the water, the school and adjacent sports center connect with the harbor like a ship alongside a quay. The buildings open up to the sea with terraces placed at various levels to provide rooftop space for games, gardening and other active recreation. The small vegetable gardens will not only provide a breath of fresh air, but also a chance for children to learn why greens are not gross out in the open.
Special-use rooms such as ones for needlework and woodwork will be placed on the ground floor of the dockyard, ensuring easy access from both the street and the water. Building projects can be constructed in the schoolyard and then set afloat as soon as the paint is dry.
