Iconic School, Bhopal


The Architects were approached to create an inspiring school campus on the fringes of Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. The Master Plan incorporated the necessary requirements of a dedicated primary school, an administration block catering to primary and senior schools, laboratories, an art centre, a library, a dining hall and outstanding residential quarters for both students and faculty. A large derelict structure that stood nearby – originally an Information Technology (IT) building with a rather unimaginative façade – was also revamped into an academic block for the school upon request by the Client. Deep structural improvements were made to this building, such as the incorporation of an additional floor for better functional efficiency. The institution’s use of vernacular brick architecture with Indo-Saracenic influence is a particularly noteworthy design element.
