D. João II School

D. João II School - Setúbal



  • Connect the new architectural elements with the reality of the existing landscape
  • Give meaning to some space typologies. Form the open courtyards, the pathways between pavilions, the enclosed gardens providing light to the indoor spaces and the conservation of the original vegetation, especially the umbrella pines (Pinus pinea) and cork oaks (Quercus suber) of large dimension


The school was part of the 3rd phase of the Parque Escolar modernisation program.


The space covers a considerable area, with different internal landscapes.
