Design Practice Location:
The British International School of Kuala Lumpur prides itself on offering a personalised and holistic learning environment and nurturing a broad of talents from sports, music, arts, language and technology. SW1 Solutions provided a design solutions for the school’s new academy block to meet these rigorous standards. SW1 planed the layout for a whole host of new spaces – including the library and resource centre, ICT centre, gymnasium, new classrooms and a reception and lounge area. The reception and lounge area manages to subtly express the school colours – as well as showing a good combination and restraint when playing with the forms and school crest. The counter easily catches the eyes but the material application manages to keep the design in-line with the rest of the space. The loose furniture complements the room as well as making it warm and welcoming. The first impression is that of progressiveness mixed with the utmost consideration of human needs.
