T School's Visions are innovative in many ways: fusion in syllabus, new ideas of teaching, long opening hours and days, it is a school situated within the library context. Creativeness is intrigued with great innovations, CallisonRTKL was invited to work with the new school in creating a unique environment that not only lives up to school motives, but also create an opportunity for these spaces to grow with the school's development and eventually become a standard of its own when the scholl moves into a permanent campus.
T School Project is situated inside an office building in Chaoyang District, Beijing, approx. 10 minutes’ drive from the capital airport. Occupying 3200sqm on 2 storeys with avariable capacity, elements put into the design should be cost effective, practical, and ideally easily dismantled andreused in a new school location.
Technology, IoT and nature of this project allowed the team to view it as a part of an infinite campus, un-restricted by location, becoming a timeless gear wheel dedicated to learning through experience, communication, and socialization. And adapting itself to drive motion thus enabling endless possibilities.
In addition to the main entrance and core area that serves the entire building, 1st floor is a collection of specialty learning spaces including Art, Music and Dance, and multifunctional spaces to host events, a kitchen space for cooking sessions, and small stage for the atrical performances. A small playground is fitted indoors to make up for the lack of outdoor grounds.
The 2nd floor is a quiet library setting that doubles as main circulation, open spaces or nodes were integrated for students to read a book or mingle, classrooms are arranged along the building envelope.
Classrooms are designed for small classes, the rooms are placed on a raised floor to allow for cabling and aid in reducing heating/cooling loads, the raised floors drop down to slab level next to the façade for a small gathering area under the sun.
The Kitchenette will be fully operational once kitchen cabinets are complete.
