Entry Description

The school has a current Heritage gallery for its students,
however it is in a locked-up room and needs a fresh update.
The school feels a need for the gallery to be easily
accessible and engaging as its aim is telling stories to create
sense of belonging for its students, and as history academic
teaching aid. So, a new space is assigned for this gallery. It
is at the school’s spiral staircase – the main access point for
students, staff and guests. Its open-concept allows anyone
to linger, study and discuss about stories told. Space
planning and design are well-thought-out to interest and
engage the students, where a mix of materials, textures and
lightings are used for presentation of information, exhibits,
and photographs of history and heritage of school and its
neighbourhood, alumni, past staff members, achievements
and activities. With 4-levels of space, it can now
accommodate to the growing information.
