The project aims to design a school that promotes healthy eating and sports. To enhance the concept of healthy learning, the school contains a series of programs, including a soccer field, growing beds, basketball court, and more.

The soccer field on the roof top is one of the main factors that determine the layout of the space and the form. On the east side, there is a five-story-high void for a basketball court. Cellular classrooms are located to the west with growing bed terraces. The structure is constructed with glulam and steel, with a water collection system integrated to collect rain or snow from the rooftop field for irrigation.
