Sikh Grammar School scheme by arcINOVATIONZ receives award from the BDA


The Sikh Grammar School is the first initiative of its kind in the Sikh community and has recently won a Design Award at an awards ceremony hosted by the Building Designers Association (BDA) of New South Wales (NSW). The major objective of the institution is to set up a school having students from pre-school to year 12 with the education program based on the syllabuses, curriculum and assessment requirements of registered and accredited schools in NSW.

The design was evolved from the closed hand and five fingers. The palm of the hand depicting school's playground and five fingers constitute the multipurpose hall, sports hall, secondary school, primary school and the admin library building. These five learning groups will be closely interlinked to each other offering a great level of interaction amongst the students and teachers.

An airy and highly flexible interior is the special design feature which will help in any future development. Playgrounds and open spaces are provided in the central location making it the heart of the development depicting the school’s focus on health and fitness as well. This will further reinforce the school & community and will help in local event hosting etc. There will be learning pods all around the primary and secondary school buildings allowing students to exchange information and learn by having high level of interconnection between multiple groups.

Every year The Building Designers Association of NSW conducts the state awards for best designs and best use of various architectural products. The design of Sikh Grammar School was entered in the competition this year by our architectural firm arcINOVATIONZ and Jaspreet Singh of arcINOVATIONZ has been declared the winner for best use of architectural product - Synergy with Surroundings.

Cad details & Presentation were the key points appreciated by the judges making this project a great success The Design Awards night was held recently at La’aqua - Cockle Bay Wharf at Darling Harbour. Over 200 Designers were present from different states. Regional Sydney BDA members took two other awards. Jaspreet said: “It is a dream project. Once completed this school will be an innovative and dynamic learning facility.”
