The School Campus is a result of thoughtful consideration, aligning client interests with the surroundings through a serene, nature-inspired architecture that prioritizes the human scale. The implementation is both functional and sensitive, catering to the needs of children and teachers with a focus on light and spatial relationships.

Designed with a modular system, the campus fosters seamless integration of spaces, emphasizing functionality and quality. Two concepts, the “L” and “Y” shapes, offer adaptability for future growth. Both concepts feature a central courtyard, serving as a unifying element.

The program, crafted according to client desires, encompasses nursery, primary and secondary schools, student facilities, library, dining area, administrative blocks, clinic, chapel, and teacher residences. The exterior features Hydraform bricks in soil color, enhancing thermal inertia and reflecting solar radiation.

Natural ventilation and light are central to the design, with a main patio facilitating light diffusion. Inclined roofs contribute to ventilation, creating a comfortable environment. The modular architecture, with its recognizable shape, serves as a brand image while providing a harmonious blend of human needs, transforming the school into a welcoming home.
