The Bombay international school is housed in a heritage residential prescient at Babulnath in Mumbai. The residential building has slowly evolved into a school over the last 50 years. The structure is load-bearing construction with a combination of brick and stone masonry. The school has recently adopted an IB curriculum that marries seamlessly with their vision of a balanced and liberal learning culture established five decades ago. The project was awarded to the architects through an invited competition process. Our proposal recommended a concept for learning by creating immersive and flexible environments. The shift is from a traditional classroom-based learning environment to creating subject rooms which offer varied a varied environment for both learning and interaction between students and teachers. The margins of the facility are reprogrammed for effective functional usage.
