This is a really special project. A school for children developed with an amazing care both in aesthetic appeal as the internal planning, and of course the main function that deserves our full attention, offering to the childrens a unique learning and consequently grow as individuals.

Located in China, Dalian is a school project by Debbas Architecture. In this project what attracted our attention is mainly is the arrangement of buildings, the architects have created several blocks rotated thinking of a better use of solar in all the environments. In this program we have spaces such as classrooms, sleeping rooms, bathrooms with showers, kitchen and dining area, ballet and music rooms, reading area and, of course, an outdoor area with a large playground for kids. They deserve it!

Overall, our concept was to create a fluid and spiritual environment distant from the more mechanistic, rigid and prosaic late-modern designs that have come before it. We want to allow the architecture to invigorate a child’s sense of wonder and generate unique memories without resorting to theatrical stage design or applied nostalgic detailing.
