Site Planning Principles adopted in the project
The Site, part of a sugar industry campus, included a small preexisting primary school for the industry’s workers. The new school was to be built for extending the class strength to Class 8 and was planned to be extended into the adjoining greens. But the new building was planned as a compact facility around courtyards for light and ventilation preserving most of the green area as play areas for children. The building was also planned to preserve all trees on site, w ith incorporation into the courtyards of those which overlapped with the proposed building envelope. Hard Paving was restricted to the bare minimum with only essential paved passages laid out.

DPAP's design philosphy is deeply ingrained into achieving design nirvana through the principles of sustainability based on a strong contextual approach. The firm has tried to exemplify sustainability as a common thread. together with the principles of energy efficiency and a practical approach to functionality in both the form and interiors. The company believes in the interpretation of the design brief within the user group or community's own basic paradigms and beliefs as an important starting point.
