Architectural Details of Choice School

Choice School’s architectural design has prioritized learning environments with better access to light, air, and outdoor space. Facilitating cross ventilation, creating outdoor rooms, and offering easy transitions between exterior and interior spaces, tackles student health issues. And we know student’s health is also a prior concern along with good education. Design strategies for successful indoor/outdoor classrooms can maximize light and air for all classrooms. Thus ensuring positive student wellness and mental health, in addition to social distancing considerations. 

The design is unique in having taken cues from the region’s culture and climate. Specific influences include the Kerala houseboat, local materials such as stone, clay tiles, and Palmyra Palm. These areas rich in vibrant color and texture, are subjected to dramatic weather. As a result, fusing these elements with modern sustainable technologies and practices, the design creates a unique experience. Thus leaving the onlooker mesmerized by its sheer simplicity and brilliance.
