The Unique Architectural concept of the campus resonates deeply on the co-existence nature and education. The building seamlessly integrates into the surrounding environment resembling a gentle hill in the park. The design carries much resemblance to a cocoon signifying a space that a truly nurturing.
On the aspects of sustainable building design, an Envelope Thermal Transfer Value (EETV) for the facility was calculated for the purpose of energy conservation. The calculations enable for the campus design to be able to achieve adequate insulation that reduces heat gain thus greatly reducing the energy consumption of air-conditioning.
