Project details

The project vision is to provide a campus environment with all the social and cultural amenities necessary for a world-class education in a bilingual environment, with exemplar recreational facilities which will used by the wider community.

The schools are significantly larger than UK equivalents at approximately 64,000sqm each, and will be designed to accommodate 1,680 pupils, from nursery through to Grade 12.

The deep roof overhang, colonnades and decorative screens layer the elevation and create shade throughout the year. Calm and ordered rhythm to the elevations reflects the module of the classrooms and provides an even quality of day lighting to enable views out without glare.
