Just above street level in Hong Kong’s Tseung Kwan O district, sunlight meets the kaleidoscopic façade of the new French International School campus, spilling into the building through windows laid across a grid of 1,000 multicolored tiles. The light illuminates an innovative campus for the institution’s primary and secondary school students – a vibrant, sustainable environment supporting a world-class multicultural education.
The recently completed French International School in Hong Kong is an organic oasis in the concrete skyline. The 20,000 square meter campus creates an open and active learning environment through green spaces and communal gathering points, utilizing physical structure to emphasize sustainability and a diverse cultural education. The campus plan includes classroom spaces for primary and secondary classes, a library, a canteen, a gymnasium and swimming pool and an auditorium, all connected through passages of gardens, open courtyards and green spaces.
Designed to utilize the natural climate and create organic space among urban surroundings, the French International School provides students with hands-on lessons in sustainability while minimizing its own environmental footprint.
