Gross builtup area
The existing site included the school campus both primary secondary and senior blocks with all the sports facilities within adjacent playgrounds. The major requirement was to create a consolidated proposal wherein all these curricular activities houses under one roof within a square site at the south-west side of the school property. An integrated Mess and a Training centre were aditional reqirements to the proposal. We starteby considering the whole site to house an introvert space that eventually opens up to the physical and social environment around. By pushing the ground level below 10 feet we created a lower ground door that housed the 300 capacity student mess, the pool and adjacent Gymnasium. This level opens out to pockets of Sunken courts created to induce light and life in the activities happening in that level. The ground level or the main arena includes the main Match court superimposed with the practice courts
. This level is directly connected with the School building by the Gallery of fame. The gallery also looks into the sunkencourts and the pool below. The design was aimed to become such that it just doesnt house the courts but also aims to provide good and healthy atmosphere to studens to facilitate interaction, team spirit and group activities .
