Oakridge International School, Bangalore

Project Description

The 10 acre campus on the outskirts of Bangalore will be the first ‘LEED Gold’ school in Bangalore. This pre K to 12 schools is designed as a day boarding school for 3,200 students. The signature building that houses the Global Learning Center (GLC) & Kindergarten Block is the first building to come up on site. The main entry to the GLC is warm & welcoming with a display of a mural that will be designed by the students themselves, hence identifies with the users. The intermediate steel & glass canopy is introduced to bring down the scale of the entrance so that the experience is not very overwhelming. The granite cladding is indigenous to Bangalore, and thus relates to the local materials.
