The Salvador Correia National High School, named High School Mutu Ya Kevela since 1975, was the first high school built in Angola. The project belongs to the Portuguese architect José António Costa Silva and was inaugurated in the early 40's. It is considered one of the best examples of Portuguese neo-traditional architecture in Luanda.
The entrance of the school is defined by two platforms joined by stairs and ramps that guarantee the alternation between distribution/circulation zones.
Most of the outdoor spaces are occupied by sports areas integrated into permeable green spaces with opportunities for sun/shade.
It was designed a specific space for a high number of students (recreation), with several banks specially designed for this function. It is a densely wooded space to create shade/sun opportunities and improve bioclimatic comfort in outdoor space.
The courtyards/cloisters were all recovered and some valences were added, namely at the level of furniture and equipment. They are spaces with excellent conditions of temperature and luminosity besides the proximity to the classrooms.
Throughout the different green spaces of the school it is intended to install an arboretum giving rise to one of the places with greater capacity for formation in natural sciences. In these places will be planted native trees of Angola or adapted to the climate of Angola where the students can make experiences, botanical identification, develop reading spaces, establish zones of group work etc., and can be a place of great diversity of activities for a great number of disciplines.
