Nanshan Foreign Language School
Nanshan Foreign Language School (NSFL) is a 54,000 sqm elementary and middle school campus, comprising regular and specialised classrooms, library, gymnasium, indoor swimming pool, auditorium and dormitory along with dining halls and dedicated playgrounds. Located in Shenzhen’s DaChong neighbourhood, the NSFL School campus represents the last piece of a decade-long development, which saw the area change from compact industrial outskirts into a vertical city.
Statement of the jury
The three- storey construction gives pupils easy access to the outdoors during break time. In addition, the staggered volumes produce generous terraces that can also be used for relaxation. An ingenious shading system contributes to a comfortable temperature in the rooms.
