Nexus International School, Singapore
Broadway Malyan won the commission to design a landmark International School in the heart of Singapore for one of Asia’s largest education organisations. The Nexus International School campus is the flagship school for the Nexus brand and is designed to develop the template for the school of the future.
The campus is set between the Pan Island Expressway, a busy arterial route, and the Pelton Canal, part of the Singapore Park Connector Loop. The design presents a dramatic and protective façade to the expressway, it’s dynamic and flowing form referencing the movement of cars. On the canal side the campus opens up integrating itself into the local community.
Facilities at the 2,000 student campus – which will also be open to the local community outside school hours and at weekends – include a 50m indoor swimming pool, a full-size roof-top sports field, recording studios, a library, an auditorium, two sports halls as well as a raft of flexible learning spaces.
At the heart of the campus and in keeping with the philosophy of the new development is the Innovation Hub. Through collaboration with the leading minds in their fields, it is a showcase space dedicated to the development of new pedagogic ideas.
