Our goal is to establish a unique place within the school that encourages interaction between the students and teachers through their daily learning and teaching life. The basic program consists of 48 classrooms, a number of special program classrooms, cafeteria, training gymnasium, administration areas and an outdoor exercise field.

The design process starts with an analytical research of the spatial pattern of interactive activities, both in plan and in section. A series of physical study model were built along the process, in order to seek the most reasonable spatial and programmatic layout. Eventually the best location of the primary interactive space is discovered to be on the 2nd floor, sandwiched by regular classroom floors, and connected to the skylight through the central atrium, where natural ventilation were maximized. The space is defined by the surrounding special program classrooms, and extends itself to a green roof deck at the south side, which is also the pivot point of the site arrangement. The deck connects to the main school entrance, the outdoor fields, and different parts of the building at different heights by stairs, ramps and bridges. Such a “Platform”, consisting of indoor space and outdoor deck, not only generates and amplifies energy of interactions, also adds visual characters to the exterior building appearance because of the application of distinctive materials and space modules.

A series of green technologies are proposed in this project, such as geothermal system, storm water management, green roof, permeable landscape, passive ventilation, maximized natural daylight, recycled material and etc.

yes a wonderful space! i like to see some kids inside with the space.
really some good stuff emerging in china, and more importantly, i think chinese designers are catching up fast, do not understand me wrong, it is a compliment.

Elementary school design~modern, sleek. Is it playful enough for elementary? http://ow.ly/2KJvM

Mega school in China. Nice architecture, but 48 classrooms for elementary level school is too many! They should... http://fb.me/HzP6t8iH

Very interesting spatial arrangements, very flashy finishing project. But there really is no way of telling that this is a building occupied predominantly by small children. Very 'grown-up'...

Very nice projects on their website too! I love the Hefei showroom.

Katsudon · September 28, 2010

Very nice!
I just miss function tags on the floor plans for a better understanding of the concept though.

The sketches and the models are quite interesting, but I feel the spatial playfulness of the interstitial zones as suggested in the concept drawings was lost in translation into reality.

Yes I agree, I was trying to find the yellow fluid and the scattered boxes, but it is not in the reality

GOOD NESS · September 27, 2010

I would like if the boxes had some order there, because it seems too chaotic inside the atrium. Also the colour scheme of the boxes is too intensive for me.
But it's still a wonderful building.
