The four-story school building, spanning an area of 25,000 square meters, is designed to cater to 1750 pupils, featuring separate entrances to distinguish between the flows of different age groups. Additionally, the school encompasses a kindergarten and boarding facilities to comfortably accommodate 60 students for overnight stays.

The design creates an inspiring and attractive atmosphere where children's boundless imagination blossoms and emotional intelligence develops, perfectly aligning with the needs of modern education.
The school zoning features "cores" with public function, such as atriums, amphitheaters, sports zones, and workshops, while classrooms are spanning along the building's perimeter.

All spaces within the school are versatile and adaptable. For instance, the amphitheater serves more than just a venue for large events and mass activities. It is also designed to facilitate smaller group collaborations, communication, and fun on a daily basis.

Climate adaptation is prioritized in the project, with a parametric sun-considerating facade and self-shaded courtyards, ensuring comfortable and energy-efficient environments.
