Waterside campus masterplan for a new international school

The new Dulwich International School in Minhang, Shanghai provides state-of-the-art teaching and learning environments for early years, juniors and seniors, including a 200 bed boarding house for the senior school children, a 560 seat professional theatre and an indoor sports hall with a 50m swimming pool.

The concept was to create a modern interpretation of the original Dulwich College, in London. With this in mind, the scheme incorporates elements such as a clocktower and appropriately proportioned red brick facades, which are synonymous with British schools and universities designed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

A traditional Chinese bridge leads students and visitors across the river to a landscaped entrance square, overlooked by a large feature window which again references the original school. The masterplan wraps accommodation around a grand quad featuring a multi-use turf sports pitches and a cricket oval.

"The four buildings have been designed to provide a modern take on the cloistered courtyard, offering a range of secure outside teaching, learning and playground areas for students to enjoy."
