Coast primary school is a full-time primary school with 36 classes. It is located in the core area of the superposition of Shenzhen Bay area and Shekou Free Trade Zone in Nanshan District, Shenzhen. It is surrounded by prosperous commercial and high-rise residential buildings with a mixture of old and new. For this rapidly developing urban center, every inch of land is labeled with efficiency; But for children aged 6-12, they need a land where they can run, chase and play freely, not just a closed air-conditioned classroom. The difficulties faced by the design are obvious and easy. Our challenge is how to creatively solve the contradiction between the limited land resources and the school’s demand for diversified space, and find a balance between the efficiency of the city and the happiness of children.

Traditional schools are often a saw saw battle between determinant and group, and the design is carried out from the functional layout of plane and corridor. In the design of coastal primary school, we hope that the architectural space will be more humanized, and the design of site and space can actively fit the nature and needs of children as much as possible; Outside the classroom, bring children a paradise of relaxation and releasing their nature; Let the campus itself become a part of their memories.

我们从矛盾出发，提出了“多层地表”的解决方案；利用提升的地面将公共与个体、教学功能与活动体验进行连接；平台提升还使得地面被解放出来，我们将图书馆、公共教学用房和课外教室分解为灵活的学习盒子，盒子按照功能分类并围合成文学、艺术、科学、图书 馆、报告厅、社团活动等六个主题院子，架空的院子为孩子们提供了舒适和适于探索发现 的学习空间体验，通过交流产生新的知识。
Starting from the contradiction, we put forward the solution of “multi-layer surface”; Use the raised ground to connect public and individual, teaching function and activity experience; The improvement of the platform also liberates the ground. We decompose the library, public teaching room and extracurricular classroom into flexible learning boxes. The boxes are classified according to their functions and surrounded by six theme yards such as literature, art, science, library, lecture hall and community activities. The overhead yard provides children with a comfortable learning space experience suitable for exploration and discovery, New knowledge is generated through communication.

The special classroom is arranged on the overhead floor of a quieter and brighter platform, where there is better daylighting and communication. The efficient and compact space sequence is dotted with natural experience sketches and shared activity corridors. We even put a planting green pool inside the corridor, hoping to provide students with a chance to get close to nature, Each class can plant their favorite plants in their own class and observe their growth process.

这样，一处分区明确，高效运作，活跃开放的校园呈现与此。校园的首层，是孩子们学习 和与自然交流的乐园，孩子们在这里获得更鼓励、促进交流讨论 的场所，室内外交融的活动空间，在自然中学习和成⻓；二层平台，串联起教学楼之间的 便捷交通，给孩子们提供了一处阳光下自由奔跑，追逐玩耍，坐卧停躺，跳跃躲藏，思考聊天的土地，承载了他们课堂之外的快乐时光；二层以上，建筑功能自下而上一次分布着不同年级的教室和教师办公室直至屋顶平台。
In this way, a clear zoning, efficient operation, active and open campus is presented with this. The first floor of the campus is a paradise for children to learn and communicate with nature. Here, children can get more encouragement and promote communication and discussion, and the activity space integrating indoor and outdoor can learn and grow in nature; The second floor platform connects the convenient transportation between the teaching buildings, providing a place for children to run freely in the sun, chase and play, sit and lie, jump and hide, think and chat, and carrying their happy time outside the classroom; Above the second floor, the building functions are distributed from bottom to top, from classrooms and teacher offices of different grades to the roof platform.

Although the urban space continues to expand and become increasingly dense. However, high-density space is not necessarily oppressive and boring. It can also be rich or even enthusiastic. We hope to maximize the value of the limited space, from thinking about space to exploring the educational model, so as to create a learning space integrating behavior and place, and guide children to have more opportunities to explore and experience on campus.

The school has been built and put into use for three years. Often, we will take our colleagues back to the school to visit up and down; Every time I walk through the English garden on the platform, I often encounter primary school students running by. Seeing their happy smiling faces is like meeting a sunny day will always enjoy it.
