Size: 120,000 sq ft (1760 students)
Cost: INR 30 crore
Completion: 2017 (Ph-1)
Located on a 13-acre site off of the main Saharanpur-Dehradun highway, the K-12 school is designed for 1760 students. The site was previously a brick-baking kiln, which now has been abandoned. It is in a beautiful natural setting with a number of trees on the peripheral boundary.
The key concept is to have the junior school and senior school as 2 separate wings but united together by the central common facilities of library, sports, art and music rooms. This facilitates interaction as well as exposure amongst the students. Since the site is in a natural setting, the landscape spaces have been cohesively integrated with the common interior spaces.
The classrooms have ample daylight and the design facilitates cross ventilation. The site has rain water harvesting and solar panels for electricity. Rat-trap bond for brick bonding has been used to optimize bricks. All natural materials in their raw form such as exposed brick, brick jali, exposed concrete, mosaic flooring etc has been used in the building.
