Project Description


The new campus in Tseung Kwan O district will serve 1,050 students ranging from kindergarten to middle school. The campus’ larger purpose is to act as a center for French culture in Hong Kong.

With its adaptable and flexible layouts, its wealth of differently scaled and multiple purposed spaces catering for future learning behaviors, interactive gardens and exposed building technologies, the school offers a stimulating and innovative learning environment for the pupils.

The campus consists of two bars elevated above a 3,000 m2 sports- and playground and a 500 m2 botanical garden. Remaining on ground floor is a 300 seat auditorium, a 600 seat canteen and a kindergarten. The bars contain respectively the Primary School and the Middle School with a large gymnasium and a swimming pool. The roofs allow for another two playgrounds and educative gardens.

The main identity of the campus is however concentrated in the façade of the Sport and Middle School block, consisting of 1,000 colored ceramic sun breakers, each adopted and customized by a student. The façade will therefore become a solid symbol of the diversity within the school and the involvement of each student coloring its future.
