Primary School Project

This project was developed by Nazmi Orbay ISISOY as a student from Antalya Bilim Universitesi and was submited to the WAS awards 2017 under the Facilities category.

The Project site is in the Burhanettin Onat Street in Antalya in Turkey. My primary school Project concept is ”School within School” which is consisting 3 different main functions for kids’ needs in school such as Educational Area, Sportive Area and Green Area. These 3 main functional spaces diveded in the site according to some concepts. Educational part is located at the middle part of the site because education is the main thing in a school. At the middle educational part symbolize the heart of the all area and gives an idea about how education is important. There are also other reasons to use educational part at the middle. For instance, middle part of the site is far from the roads and highway and pedestrian walking way so there would not be any noise pollution which comes from outside of the site. Shape of the educational building consisting according to catching sun for energy save, catching fresh air and circulate it inside and some other passive strategies for save the energy as much as i can. Classes located the North part of the site for not taking the sun light directly. (Direct sunlight would create a shadow point on the desks.) Other functions explained in the posters which i shared as a image poster. The area is designed according to save effect of the integrity. 3 main functions used together and blended with a really detailed integration as a walking ways, connections, shape of structures inside, functions and also as a landscape design. In the Project i also tried to use green roofs in each floors for giving the natural effect of all parts of school for students peace and needs.
