A glass facade and landscape in the courtyard of school makes the corridoors around more effceint. So, all school facilities are connected to each other.

I loved the shading membrane that reduces the amount of sun coming in and the court with glazed facade which is suitable for UAE weather.

Stimulating school completes in Abu Dhabi 


Officially opened in September 2011, the Al Bateen School is an inspirational learning facility on an island site in the centre of Abu Dhabi. Brought on as lead consultants, architects and engineers Dewan developed the concept designs of Singapore-based CPG Consultants PTE LTD over a short period of 60 days.

Totalling 2,680 sq m, the completed education building is a highly environmentally-friendly school comprising of classrooms, sports areas, creative arts rooms, drama studios, home economic laboratories, modern science rooms and technology facilities. There are also various other amenities such as an indoor swimming pool, multi-purpose hall, a performance auditorium and outdoor sport facilities. Student capacity is 1,200 from Y7-Y13.

The teaching and recreation rooms are centered on an expansive atrium which offers a sheltered space for social interaction or quiet contemplation. A paneled glass canopy forms a partially-closed roof through which light penetrates, with shading provided by swathes of material.
