Alexandre Marcos & Ángel Luis Rocamora, La Monsina nursery school

Winner in the architecture section of the 17th awards given by the Valencia Region Institute of Architects, the La Monsina nursery school by Alexandre Marcos and Ángel Luis Rocamora is located in Callosa del Segura, a town in Alicante province. The educational center is conceived as a play of scales addressing the needs of adults and children. Enriched with colors and textures, the spaces result from an orderly composition of pieces, with functionality the main consideration. Different materials are used, including concrete, glass, and tiles, with special importance given to the ceramic elements. Under a roof unfolded into a decomposition of planes, the envelope becomes a continuous fold to solve matters having to do with orientation, lighting, and ventilation. The large courtyard, a playground serving all the classrooms, is complemented with gardens and follows the lot’s topographical lines.
