This is the first academic building devised with new architectural standards, already in Northern Europe, to improve school children’s needs. With its U plan and a wide inner courtyard, it had well-lit classrooms on each side and a gym.

The halls, characterized by portals, frames and little hanging arches in local limestone, stand out against the red brick outer covering.
