About the project:

Comprising of a ground-level car park, three levels of teaching/laboratory space and an open roof space, the building provides an innovative learning and collaborative space for the School’s students and educators. The learning experience of students is further extended through the building’s practical use as an education model, achieved through the incorporation of various sustainability-focussed technologies which include: a weather station, wind turbine and PV cells.

An open area on the rooftop was also designed as a practical learning space to support an active learning environment.
