British Vietnamese International School
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Architectural & Landscaping Design
THIEN HUONG EDUCATION JSC
Transform designed a building which accommodates all the functions of the largest bi-lingual international school in Vietnam.
The organic form allows the building to appear small and intimate from the eye level from all perspectives. The brief calls for 2 schools so in order to maximise site usage, the design cleverly separates the building into a primary school and a secondary school. It subtly divides separate playgrounds and fields and defines separate entrances. Main functions such as the gymnasium, canteens and libraries can be flexibly divided or combined. In addition, green features such as sun shading devices, sky gardens, breezeways and energy conservation is employed throughout.
