The Sheikh Zayed Private Academy is designed to support different learning styles and 21st century educational skills. By offering overlapping and differentiated learning environments, containing areas for knowledge sharing, inspiration and personal challenge, Rosan Bosch Studio’s design supports, develops and engages each student.
The design refers to the local cultural heritage, with strong visual effects created throughout the school. It draws on references to the desert and natural resources, such as the water channels that have been crucial to life in the region. Artistic graphic design and way finding unfolds in the academy, with references to the local history and subjects, such as mathematics, language and geography.
The comprehensive building fit out includes approximately 20.000 m2, and has a capacity for 1400 students from KG1 to Gr12. The design concept is a high quality and forward-looking design solution, which meets international standards based on a strong visual identity, with deep respect for the Emirati culture and traditions.
Dynamobel has collaborated on this renowned project in the audience area. Here, the Lira bench can be found in three different upholstery colours along with the Nova bench which leads in the front row, reserved for visits and the centre authorities.
