The design concept for this project is based on grouping classrooms and educational facilities around a series of landscaped courtyards, playgrounds and gathering plazas. The project consists of an elementary and secondary school for male students and includes classrooms, labs, administrative and teaching office facilities. Landscape theme is designed to provide various recreational areas with water features and trees to give shade and increase humidity. Simple architectural elements are used with contemporary interpretation in response to climatic and environmental factors, expressing a human scale through the articulation of buildings masses.
