The connection of the new building to the existing structure is also well solved. The reference to the height of the cornice of the existing building is viewed positively in terms of urban integration. The reduced height of the new building has an advantageous effect on the quality of the urban space and allows for the creation of a roof garden and the use of the roof level for teaching purposes.

Also the location of the multi-purpose room and performance center is well thought out. Additional side entrances to the gymnasiums, the music classrooms and the event areas allow for external use.
