This 47,000m2 green urban school campus was planned to accommodate 875 students including boarding. The project comprises five accommodation blocks, the main school building, a 300-seat theatre, 25m swimming pool, an enclosed four court sports facility and an outdoor 400m running track.

The design has created a secure, adaptable and environmentally sustainable urban campus. Innovative solutions have optimised energy performance, addressed the region’s seismic risks and countered the air quality and noise impacts from the nearby highway. A biophilic design approach, filtration of air and water and high-performance facades, enhance the health and wellbeing of students and staff.

Rasti Bartek, comments on the project: “Our team in London together with Scott Brownrigg architects worked closely with the team from Lady Eleanor Holles School and developed a design that has student experience and quality of teaching as the overarching priority. Our team in Hong Kong in later stages worked with Trumptech to ensure successful implementation.”
