The change of use of the building increased the number of users and concentrated the mealtime schedule of the canteen, saturated during this time and completely empty the rest of the day. The order of the original plan follows a dichotomy with almost no interaction between its parts: a 3-sided back-of-house belt surrounding a big open space –the eating hall–..

The operation adds a degree of hierarchy to the orthogonal grid through its own diagonal to define the boundary of a new belt. The central space is now almost triangular.

The belt is a new frontier, permeable and habitable, built with boxes carved to host different programs that sprawl to the central space. Two rooms beyond the belt. The teachers eating area that becomes the living room of the staff and the a large stepped space.

Two boxes to reflect the possibilities of the openness, a flexibility imported into a building from the spatial logics of the city. An openness that requires confrontation to transform an empty space in the most dense of rooms
