NATIONS ACADEMY

  • NATIONS ACADEMY, BUILT TO ACCOMMODATE 2720 PUPILS, IS TO BE LOCATED ON ONE OF THE MOST PROMINENT SITES IN AL BARSHA, DUBAI AT THE INTERCHANGE OF HESSA STREET AND SHEIKH ZAYED ROAD.
  • Completed in collaboration with Aedas HK, the 4 storey building stands out clearly from its surroundings and will be identifiable as one of the most prestigious schools in the Middle East. The concept has been developed around a very simple and iconic architectural diagram of a wave form which perches above a podium. The building form and elevations ensure that building changes hour by hour as the sun moves round and shadows constantly change. The site organisation ensures that large play spaces are created at grade for Kindergarten and elementary pupils with older pupils able to use the sports pitches and upper terrace spaces.

    The building wraps around a 400m running track which creates a stunning backdrop when hosting sporting events. Connections between inside and outside spaces are seamless and areas of deep cover are provided to ensure outdoor activity can be maintained all year round. Internal facilities include a 2000 seat triple gym, indoor running tracks, a 900 seat auditorium and a digital theatre utilising some of the latest projection technologies. Other facilities include a 50m swimming pool and learner pool.
