The proposed school extension locates at the new district of Shunde. The design strives to create a spacious setting within the stringent constraint of building setback requirement imposed by the narrow site; and to accommodate all the functional need consisting of teaching block for primary students, multipurpose learning facilities, school library, student dormitory, recreational ground and administration block etc.

Vertical campus is the optimum solution. The design evolved a hybrid of high-rise and low-rise architecture maximizing the benefit of the building typology: users can enjoy the scenic view on higher floors whilst the low blocks form an intimate cluster setting appropriate for campus activities. The tall blocks are placed on the two corners of the site allowing the openness at the center of the campus whereas the lower blocks are configured to form a series of courtyards; together with an unobstructed yet covered area at ground level with pockets for leisure/ interaction , emphasizing humanitarian spirit in this elite international school.

Sustainability design elements is implemented at every levels including green roof, green wall, sky garden, ventilated ground floor and etc., creating a green and vibrant campus.
