School of Rock Dominicos, was awarded the winner of the Education Category for this year’s Design Awards. Headquarters of the School of Rock music academy in the Las Condes commune in Santiago de Chile, it is a project seeking to create rehearsal spaces for its students. Using rich colors, art and the graph, distinguished this school others previously designed by EGBARQ. The rooms are distributed throughout a large floor with natural lighting and views of the mountains, this is also where the student lounge is located. Next to this space, a long corridor contains individual classrooms that have been painted in different colors. On the opposite side, group rehearsal rooms with containers on top recreate a container yard. A set of murals made on site, including one of Eddie Van Halen, mark important milestones within the school.
