using movement and modules to create an interactive and productive learning hub 

 

BHA architecture defined the school using movementthey arranged the building modules in a U-shaped layout that goes from low to high on either side. this approach also creates a semi-enclosed space where a green open field and garden are held for sports and recreation. the architects then calculated the total number of classrooms before layering them on top of one another. by stacking the classrooms, BHA reduces the impact of surrounding buildings on the one hand and offers students visual access to the inner garden on the other. sna marianapolis international school bien hoa campus 2

 

 

a hero feature of this project is the lobby’s 24-meter-long staircase that hosts a large gathering spot beneath it where students can socialize, and parents can wait to pick up their children. the stairs also serve as an open link to the large playground facing the library and theater, allowing for greater interaction and interconnectedness to unfold within the school campus.

structurally, the facade is made of 2.5mm powder-coated iron plates separated into five modules and built within a factory before being erected on-site. for air circulation and sunshade, the building shell is separated from the inner wall and acts as a buffer for the technical system, including air conditioning and drainage.
