The design was developed for an upcoming project in Bikaner district of Rajasthan. The senior secondary school explores climatic responsiveness as the core principle of design and evolves the functional vocabulary of elements based on the site character, curricular and extracurricular activities. Courtyard as the central element of space making has been employed to lend a cohesive spatial experience. The activity areas are planned such to utilize the shaded regions of the site in this residential school.
Proposed units are double shelled structures that allow the natural draft of the region to cool down its premises and provides shade to all the interior functions of the unit. The design focuses on unobstructed movement within the unit and create multiple enclosures with varying degree of spatial stimulus. Site planning has been done to minimize the solar gains and provide shade to the open pockets within the campus. Various smaller interventions are derived from "Gurukul" typology where teaching can be shifted outside in a transitory space maintaining a connect with open environment and aiding the natural learning process.
