Embraced by a dynamic city fabric that located in Shenzhen Futian CBD, Xinsha is an old neighbourhood with narrow valleys under rapid urban regeneration. With the aim of enhancing the local education standard, Aedas Executive Director Chris Chen and Founder and Global Principal Designer Keith Griffiths have led the team to design a new sustainable campus that integrates the city.

To implement a modern learning model, the design provides a plenitude of outdoor learning spaces instead of traditional indoor learning environment. It creates ‘Three Loops’ that connects the classrooms, recreational spaces and social area as a huge interactive campus, namely ‘Knowledge Loop’, ‘Social Loop’ and ‘Physical Loop’.

The integration encourages interaction and outdoor learning to foster an efficient learning process. The layout facilitates an all-rounded development of students, which also signifies a continuous and interconnected learning loop.

The design adopts a people-centric approach that includes a series of energy-efficient measures to encounter the subtropical climate characteristics. High performance glazing glasses and external shadings are used to reduce the heat gain, whilst photovoltaic canopies are designed to provide solar power to reusable energy for the campus.

With the porous design of the building base, the design provides cross natural ventilation, as well as optimises the air quality and reducing the risks of infectious diseases. The serene yet vibrant environment merges the school in harmony with the surrounding community and world-class educational resources.
