This project was commissioned by the Trivandrum International School Education Society, and the brief required an open plan with a sense of transparency between spaces.
This school is set atop a lush green hill on a 17-acre campus, from kindergarten to class 12 catering to the Cambridge, IB and ICSE curricula. The site had their academic blocks and two hostel blocks existing, and this project was for a fourth academic block for senior school
The central courtyard doubles up as an amphitheatre for in-house functions. This is surrounded by green courts that also step down according to the levels that each floor has been split between. Hence a good sense of visibility and grandeur is created in this big and simple gesture.
This block is for the Senior school of the International Baccalaureate program, which will have state-of-the-art facilities, laboratories, a centralized library, music and art studios, besides the classrooms and administrative areas.
