Located on the outskirts of Granada, Spain, this primary school design features tiny porthole windows that serve as a first line of defense against stray balls. A southern Spanish city known for its Medieval and Moorish architecture, Granada is a city possibly most well-known for Alhambra, a hilltop fortress.

The stunning concrete project was designed by Elisa Valero Arquitectura, who were hired by the Cerrillo de Maracenas School to build a multi-purpose hall for the campus. Arguably the most unique feature of the new primary school hall is the porthole-style windows that create a stunning sunlight pattern on its interior walls.

The new wing for the primary school in southern Spain boasts a classroom space on the ground floor and a second storey for hosting a variety of events.
