The Radcliffe School is nestled within the city limits of Pune at Chowiswadi. A compact layout in “C” form accompanied by volume that makes up the main courtyard, and the wo-building
connected by covered walkway.
This arrangement of courtyard design allows the building to breathe fresh air and daylight while providing a safe and secure environment for leaning and social engagement. Terraces are created at different levels to cut down the built mass and break the monotony of the structure.
The built mass is cladded by brick through thick and thin planes all around to create a subtle rhythm and harmony to the exterior. The climate is taken in consideration while placing the planes and fins. A bright warm color palette is used to create a cheerful ambience for the students.
Simple cost-effective gestures were deployed in the use of cladding, fenestration, terraces, color and transparency to create a memorable sense of richness, providing a bright moment to the students.
