Bogle Architects design International School in Vietnam

Construction has started on Bogle Architects’ International School in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

The scheme will provide teaching facilities for over 900 students on a 1.15 hectare site adjacent to the River Saigon.

The school is positioned on the site in direct response to the sun’s trajectory – allowing daylight to enter from the north and south facades while restricting heat gain.

The design is notable for its clarity – all the main facilities are arranged along a central spine or ‘high street’. Classrooms are specifically located to optimise environmental conditions and improve students’ wellbeing.
