Sentia School

Institutional / Jan - Feb 2017

Sentia School

Sentia School will offer a primary, secondary and high school curriculum. Open corridors will connect all three main blocks of the school, and the five-storey building will be divided according to grades and utilisation.

With an asymmetrical site surrounded by tower blocks, the classrooms will run in a zigzag form in a north-south direction. With this layout, the architects were able to create pockets of space where separate age-appropriate playgrounds will be constructed.

To create a fun and vibrant façade, colourful sunshades will be used for each window.
