This project involved the construction of a two-storey high school, including labs, gym, kitchen, cafeteria and a second-storey lobby that includes glass walls for direct viewing into the gym. Large windows allow for the maximum natural daylight and stunning views of the mountains to seep into the spaces developed for flexible learning and interactivity between students, teachers, and the community. Greater adaptability was achieved by using movable walls between the classroom and gathering areas. Further engagement with the community is facilitated by providing access to the gymnasium and other core areas after school hours. The exterior finish is a combination of metal cladding and other architectural finishes including trespa and stucco, while the parking area is separate asphalt concrete curbed and landscaped.
