A landmark international school offering state-of-the-art teaching facilities
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 provide the template for the school of the future.
Facilities at the student campus include a 50m indoor swimming pool, a 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 is the Innovation Hub, a showcase space dedicated to the development of new pedagogic ideas.
Designed as an Apple Distinguished School technology is an integral part of the curriculum delivery and a primary driver in the design of the school infrastructure with the latest technology integrated throughout.
A range of initiatives work towards a design ambition of ‘zero waste, zero water, zero energy’ with technologies that see the pool heated through waste heat from learning spaces, smart shading operated by sunlight sensors and rainwater management enhanced to deal with local climatic conditions.
“At Nexus we believe in evidence based pedagogy which centres learning around the student. Our experienced staff personalise and tailor their lessons to each individual to ensure their particular learning levels are met. Teaching in this collaborative and interactive way requires a unique space that reflects this.”
