Located on the south side of the Abu Dhabi peninsula, this 33 acre waterfront site gave us an opportunity to take advantage of the existing landscape, and design a landmark world-class elite school around the landscape. One part of the site overlooks the sea on the south and the canal to the north-east. The other portion of the site is adjacent to the palace and overlooks the canal. Spread across 29630 sm, the school will offer education to students from grade 6-12, and will consist of core academic areas such as classrooms, library, art centers, workshops and auditoriums, and academic support areas will include the administrative areas and the gymnasium. Sports and recreation zones for the students will be spread across the academy. The design for the academy also includes a designated housing community for the faculties and a commercial zone that overlooks the beach.
