Metropolitan School

Project Description

On a land area of 20,000 m2, the international school is located south of the Police Academy in New Cairo, Egypt. The total footprint area of school buildings is 6,000 m2, and the remaining area of 14,000 m2 is carefully utilized to provide children with spacious playgrounds and outdoor sports facilities, including football, basketball, and volleyball fields, as well as a tennis court and storerooms.

The school basement, which occupies the entire land area, includes indoor football, basketball, and volleyball fields, as well as two indoor swimming pools, two cafeterias, along with storerooms and a parking area.

The school project was implemented in three main phases as follows:

  • Kindergarten building (ground floor and two upper floors above the school basement): 10 classrooms, administrative offices, and a clinic
  • 4 school buildings connected to a main spine: two preparatory school buildings (30 classrooms) and two buildings for primary and secondary schools (15 classrooms)
  • Administration building: multipurpose hall, indoor swimming pool, cafeteria, gymnasium hall, library, auditorium, and administrative offices

The conceptual design had portrayed the school buildings in such a way that emphasizes the value and power of education in Egypt. Power, beauty, and simplicity have subsequently been taken as prime factors governing
the entire design process. In the same context, building façades feature colored curtain walls neatly mixed with metal cladding, thus adding a modern touch harmonizing with the surrounding environment.
