The strategic location of the site within two main residential arteries naturally causes the built form to be coherent and to assume a strong urban character and identity, legible to both local and neighbouring zones.

The Academy offers a learning environment that is spatially reassuring and able to engage students actively, creating an atmosphere for progressive teaching.

Its highly functional spaces present generous environments with maximum levels of natural light, ventilation and understated but durable textures. The communal spaces – shared by all the schools – encourage social communication with aggregation nodes that weave together the extensive accommodation schedule.

Similarly, in order to generate a setting that encourages interaction, the external shared spaces are layered to create informal social and teaching areas at various levels based on the convergence of multiple functions. The scheme provides an educational complex that is equally esteemed and cherished by the pupils and community.
