Adarshila Vatika is a school designed with an emphasis on visual education, enabling young children to learn by analysis and observation, encouraging a process where they learn with fun. An existing structure was redesigned to maintain functional requirements.
The elevation was kept largely intact and the original structure formed the core of he new facility with all rooms having plenty of ventilation. Corridors connect all the spaces centering on the courtyard.
The hexagonal structure encircles an open courtyard which serves as a secure playground for children. rather than forms drawn for fairy tales the elevation focussed on shapes and forms. The use of colour is uniform and connected. The landscape was an integral part of the design element.
The classroom areas have large windows overlooking the corridor and exterior spaces forming a visual link between two spaces. It makes the space quite interactive where children from different class and parents can have view of classroom activities, expanding the teaching areas.
