The campus of SKV school itself acts as the primary design factor. The vast mango grooves, the shade giving existing trees on site and also the restored natural pond define the design language of the campus.

The linearity and discipline of the grids of the mango grooves define the linear language of the built mass, which is broken down by a diagonal axis which divides the land parcel into small landscape courts. The existing shade giving trees inspired dividing the classroom with a shaded bridge and also creating interactive shaded courtyards that promote extra curricular activities for students. The vast campus fulfills every students dream of multiple sports activities with well integrated landscape leisure pockets.

Like the new methodology of studies applied in the campus, the landscape design promotes hands on experience of seasonal planting for the student’s in order to create awareness and sensitivity towards nature. The site contours help creating a range of sports activities on multiple levels and creating vivid experiences for the user.

The campus is basically designed considering every small aspect that could benefit the growth and development of a student.
