Home > Winners > #63409


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Hefei No.45 Middle School Fu Rong Campus

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
School

INSPIRATION:
Different from conventional examination-oriented education mode, the design team hopes to bring in more interaction and communication so that students can enjoy the real essence of school life. An interactive central spine has been introduced which contains not only circulation space but a lot of multifunction rooms and gathering space, providing opportunities for students to exchange, communicate and explore.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
From the lands use point of view, schools are not the most efficiently use of the resources due to their limited operation hours. And therefore, this project is to pursue the idea of integrating mixed-use concept into Fu Rong No. 45 Middle School so that it is not only a purposely-built learning space for students but also opened to public events and cited as the living space for the neighborhood.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This project is responsibly built and contributed to the local community after completion. It effectively met all requirements demanded by local government and the operator. With a total of 27000 square meters, the school comprised 42 classrooms and a variety of teaching, experimenting and activity rooms.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
August 2015 in Hefei, China

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Environment consideration was one of the project’s key concepts. The design approach deployed passive sustainable strategies to adapt to the extreme summer and winter climatic conditions of Hefei. All the classrooms were in liner slabblock form and north-south oriented with open corridors along the south side so as to promote cross-ventilation, and also the corridors can serve as a sun shading device in the summer, while in the winter time, they allowed low angle sun to come in to heat up the indoor space, to prevent snow and ice from accumulating along the corridors which could be dangerous to children.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Gross Floor Area: 27,239 sqm

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Just like any other fast-growing cities in China, Hefei needs extra dimensions to accompany her economy growth. As the city expands, new districts are being planned and developed, and public facilities are becoming more important for establishing msocially sustainable communities. From the lands use point of view, schools are not the most efficiently use of the resources due to their limited operation hours. And therefore, this project is to pursue the idea of integrating mixed-use concept into Fu Rong No. 45 Middle School so that it is not only a purposely-built learning space for students, but also opened to public events and cited as the living space for the neighborhood.

CHALLENGE:
The project strictly controlled the quality of construction and design due to its function as educational space for relatively young students. Different to traditional approach of only meeting statutory requirements, the design team aimed to bring further innovated modes of education and multifunctional interactive spaces into the design. By providing a rich and diverse learning environment between students, furthermore creating sharable and flexible public spaces for surrounding local communities. This concept of maximum use of resources outside the teaching time and adding community value was greatly appreciated by the local government, school and developer.
