  • COLEGIO ALTAMIRA, CHILE, 2000Architect: Mathias KlotzLocation: Pealoln, Santiago, ChileConstruction Co. NDS ConstructoresEngineers: Enzo Valladres Function: School of 10M for 1.4 PupilsBuilding surface: 6.500 m2Terrain Suface:12000m

    Altamiras is a school located on the hillside of Los Andes Mountains. It sits on a site that is rectangular measuring 60 meters by 200 meters. Its capacity as a school was to accommodate 10m for 1.4 of its students.

    The pivot point is the central playground which was originally to be surrounded on all four sides by building. Closed off by the buildings, opening only to the view of the mountains and of the city defining the east-west sight.The gym, which has its multi-propose function of sport activities as well as congregational and theatrical, and the cafeteria make for the center of the site with tall glazed walls encompassing a connection with the classrooms and mainly looking to the street so that it can be used by common public activities.

    The faades are different, which the architect Mathias Klotz explains, this materials were chosen in some way because the client had no clear idea of what he needed and it had to be build in 8 months.And what come out is a east and west faade made of concrete, the south faade of wood, and the north faade made of aluminum and colored panels.

    The classrooms and facilities surround a sloping central courtyard. Oddly-shaped openable windows give an interesting appearance to the aluminum walls of the slick rectangular buildings. Colorful squares and layers of glazing engage the student inside.

    The altamira project is an exercise of the structures and surfaces, subject of the general proposal to clearness and simplicity (build the borders, liberate the center). M a t h i a s K l o t z
