Overseas Chinese Academy of Chiway
Suzhou, China

Flexible learning spaces inspired by local cultural heritage

Situated in the Suzhou Industrial Park, the school benefits from a beautiful natural setting close to Jinji Lake.

Client Chiwayland Group’s brief called for flexible, modern learning spaces that balanced the unique spiritual ethos of an international school alongside the unique cultural heritage of Suzhou. Designed using traditional Chinese masterplanning concepts, a hierarchy of paths connects public spaces and divides the buildings into three functional areas moving from West to East.

High quality public realm accommodates outdoor teaching spaces in addition to extensive sports facilities and play areas, providing added value for students and encouraging exploration and interaction.

Boarding facilities are in place from Kindergarten through to grade 12.

“Students and teachers want flexible approaches to learning. That means an ability to select their preferred learning tools, adapt spaces to fit the content of a lesson, and enable both individual and group based learning.”
