GIIS: School of the future
Cosentino Group, a leader in innovative surfaces for architecture and design, collaborated with Global Indian International School (GIIS) for its technology-driven SMART Campus.
Aptly named “School of The Future”, the 21st-century campus is meticulously designed to incorporate state-of-the-art technology into all their modern facilities to provide a nurturing environment for students.
For interior spaces on par with the calibre of their education, GIIS selects Cosentino’s world-renowned surfaces Silestone® and Dekton® for its SMART Campus and integrates them seamlessly into the dynamic architecture of the School of The Future.
For the sprawling, multi-faceted campus, each floor is designed with a different theme based on nature and continents, said Cosentino in a media release on 20 Dec 2018.
Cosentino’s versatile and top-quality surfaces adequately complement the different nuances of each space to maximise both functionality and aesthetics. In addition, the long-lasting and durable surfaces are also easy to maintain, making them the architects’ choice for the school.
Undertaken by Architects Team 3, their architect representative Shivali Singh shares: “The infrastructure was designed to cater to GIIS vision of a unique, one-of-a-kind school which uses latest technology and modern facilities to provide a holistic, skill-based pedagogy to the students. Using versatile and quality materials like Silestone® and Dekton® surfaces, we brought out the vision of having individual and collaborative spaces that are conducive for the holistic learning of the next generation.”
In common spaces such as the entrance lobby and corridors, the colours in Silestone® are used to create interesting and vibrant flooring patterns to enliven the environment.
Silestone’s wide selection of colours makes it versatile enough to suit the different colour schemes and themes of the overall design.
The use of Dekton® in areas such as the main reception furnishes the space with a high-end, polished look that is visually stunning when the unique, hexagonal lighting bounces off the marbled texture of the flooring.
With its cutting-edge look and feel, GIIS SMART Campus serves as the most conducive environment to nurture young minds into future leaders and innovators to come. fiinews.com
