Middle & Senior School Renovation
As part of the Global Master Plan for the expansion of the ASB, the Lower School was relocated about 5Km away in a new seven-story tower located in the Kohinoor Complex. This allowed EDA a substantial amount of open space to rework the existing main campus building as home for the expanded Middle and High Schools. Originally a hotel, the building had many challenges to overcome. Judicious use of transparent panels opened up the school to daylight, and reduced the over-all ambient noise level. The main strategy was to open the main entry floor below the Main Atrium level. This would allow a great increase of filtered natural light down into the new location of the Middle School. By raising the roof, a Black Box Performance Space was created underneath.
