Project DescriptionVEGA is a primary school till grade 5 located in the heart of Gurgaon. The two cylinders of the building are connected by the vertical and services core. The facade is designed as square panels with insulation and high performance glazing as an intent to reduce the heat gains. Similarly the roofing is also insulated and covered with an additional tensile structure such that the entire envelope is responds to the extreme weather conditions. The intermediate coloured panels give it a playful look which reflects the function of a primary school. Each of the cylinders is a learning pod with open classrooms, activity pods and teacher's collaboration areas such that each pod can function independently.
The interior spaces have a variety of furniture to cater to various modalities of learning, but at the same time it is not too busy. The pastel palette helps kids to focus and learn. Overall the design promotes collaboration, interdisciplinary learning, play based learning and movement.
