Project Introduction

The premise of this project is to design an innovative primary school campus focusing on the increasing students mental health problems and dealing with the relatively harsh local climate.

We design the innovative connecting corridors to improve the interaction between each building and create a completely sheltered campus that protects students and school faculties from the harsh climate. And we provide a variety of different spaces for public activities and relaxation spaces such as activity rooms, books corners, piano room and tree cave space, helping students releasing their academic anxiety and related psychology problems such as school weariness and social withdraw. 

To correspond the local architectural style, the facade is made of grey brick and decorated in lively yellow and orange color applied on other innovative materials like tinted glass and window and door frames. The sustainable goals are considered in courtyard landscape design that follows the facade language and roof garden. Natural ventilation and use of daylight is also incorporated into the sustainable design within the project.
