Campus Design


 

Set among lush rolling hills in the fast-growing city of Iskandar, Malaysia, the new Raffles American School campus accomodates pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students. The 19-hectare school is envisioned as a holistic learning environment that is seamlessly interwoven into its beautiful setting. Given the slope of the site, The campus consists of three main “terraces,” with each terrace occupied by a cluster of grade levels. Programming includes classrooms, labs, art studios, a performing arts center, a library, and student housing. The campus also features a host of outdoor athletic amenities: swimming pools, ball courts, playing fields. Sustainability figures heavily into the design. The building features passive-cooling techniques such as cross-ventilation and the stack effect, in addition to exterior shading devices. The buildings are constructed out of locally sourced materials and the utilization of local construction methods.


In 2012 Raffles American School recieved an award when participating in World Architecture Festival. Placing in the category of "Future – Education” and “Future – Mixed Use” categories.
