The extension of the school facilities of a secondary school in the city of Chania was planned using the transformation of the grid as a primary tool. The starting point of the design is a wall, of dimensions 100x10x1m, on which surface a square grid was designed and then transformed. It eventually creates a wall made of solids and voids and altitude variations similar to the urban front of the city. This wall is repeated , and while being parallel to the first, it creates an axis of motion between them. As a result, the new building volumes, which were created by the grid, penetrate the walls. These volumes constitute the extended spaces of the school (library, music workshop, etc.). Each space was designed for a wide range of purposes, thus satisfying the students’ needs, and also creating an indoor – outdoor experience. The entire interior space, the furniture and the outdoor space were also designed on the basis of this grid.
