A child learns best by having the freedom to explore, interact andexperiment. By introducing a pedagogy with no holidays, no fixed periods and aflexible curriculum, this 365-day school model aims to free students fromconventional textbook education and focuses on their holistic development bycombining academics and co-curricular activities. The core philosophy of this visionwas to build a learning institution that encouraged a sense of ownership and inculcated asense of responsibility in its students by having boundary free classrooms.
By starting with fixing the access and keeping in mind the publicedge, two main entries were provided, one leading to the classrooms through the ground(student access) and second, leading directly into the support spaces (staff access) onthe first floor. The design revolves around a central courtyard containing the staircase,using it as a fun element. The classrooms are an amalgamation of spaces having privatespots exclusively for the students, such as mezzanines and small coves, and thelearning area for interaction with the teachers. With the inclusion of recreational spacessuch as a library, art and crafts room, open studio, herbs garden, pantry and opengrounds around the classrooms, the concept of a boundary free learning institute isaccomplished.
