The new school building is an expansion of the nearby Kingston International School. Site area is small and the program is to provide six classrooms and two multi-purpose rooms for two primary school levels.
We aim to make the entire environment and spaces themselves part of the active learning experience for the students, hence besides meeting the basic program needs,we create “possibility spaces” at various human scales.This interactive learning background of various scales sets up different challenges and exploration routes for students who no longer confined to their lessons inside classrooms but are encouraged to extend their creative learning activities beyond. Multi-functionality of space and interpretation of windows as an innovative media between interior and exterior was fully explored in this design. Students can experience the spatial connectivity from their movements at each floor and the continuous flow of space from inside-out and outside-in. The school building is filled with sunlight, air, greeneries, and joy.
新校舍是香港京士頓國際學校的擴建專案,基本的功能包括六間教室和兩間多功能室。我們目標是為學生設計一個主動學習的環境和空間,因此除了基本的功能需求外,我們希望創建出各種人性化尺度的“可能性空間”,提供不同規模的互動式學習背景。另外,學習不再局限於教室內,不同的探索路線,鼓勵他們的創造性。窗戶作為內部和外部之間的媒介,學生可以從中體驗到每個樓層和空間,從內到外和外到內,連續流動的空間。我們希望這所學校的建築充滿了陽光,空氣,綠葉和喜悅。
