Bio-climatic School at Vadodara – Green Design

6

“The Hollow-core Interlocking Blocks used in the project for walling were made of Paper-mache and the space was so cool that they did not even need to put on their fans in the month of June when the school was inaugurated. The kids were so happy with the colourful homely environment and the ambience inside the school that no single tiny tot cried.” Shared Architect Anil Laul of Anangpur Building Center. The design has won the first prize in the Green Building category, awards instituted by HUDCO. More details about the awards can be found HERE.

About the Project:

Bright colour gate greets children and families as they enter the school grounds from the greens, making a bold and  welcoming statement. Curved shaded seating within the landscape are features that fascinate.  The reception area is a warm and inviting space which opens smaller and larger commons and the courtyard that  floods in the space with natural light.  The central courtyard becomes a hub of activity at certain times of the day, where the little ones play and interact.  Pupils gain great experience from meeting and listening to the teachers, many visitors, developing social, language and behavioural skills.

The school is visually striking and makes a statement, with a simple palette of attractive recycled regional materials, detailed carefully to be durable and easily maintained, giving it an identity in its community.
