• Broadway Malyan wins school design brief in China

    28 June 2013

    Broadway Malyan has secured a high-profile brief to design a major new school campus in China for up to 1,500 students, with client Dulwich College International, the international partner of leading UK independent school, Dulwich College.

    Dulwich College International 1The new campus in Minhang, Shanghai, will be constructed on a 40,000m2 site, with the gross floor area of about 72,000m2 and is the latest planned by the client, following the creation of Dulwich College Shanghai in Pudong as an independent, British international school in 2003 and which today provides world-class education to 1,400 expatriate students aged 2 to 18.

    Broadway Malyan won the appointment against a competitive field of international designers and consultants, with the practice set to deliver a wide range of masterplanning, architectural, interior and landscape design services. The masterplan wraps accommodation around a grand quad featuring multi-use turf sports pitches and a cricket oval, focusing the internal on the external.

    The first phase of the campus is split into four buildings, combined early years and juniors, a central facilities building housing a 560 seat professional theatre, senior school and an indoor sports hall including a 50m swimming pool.


    The 280-meter-tall Lumina Shanghai, developed by Henderson Land Group and designed by Gensler, is the tallest skyscraper in the Xuhui Riverside District.

    A sophisticated yet modern setting was derived by juxtaposition of Indochine-Vietnamese features and wood-fire inspired material palettes. Re-interpretation of the spatial order of a typical Indochine-Vietnamese mansion has been adopted to give hierarchy, layers and details to the space.
