RESHAPING THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Inspired by contemporary research in educational space design
VERSO engaged IDEO to create a visionary blueprint for its conceptual and physical design.
The inspirational design of its looped campus buildings in Bangkok and facilities
redefines what an international school can be.
VERSO’s futuristic architecture and space designs offer students an inspirational learning environment. The school’s state-of-the-art facilities have been designed to support VERSO’s compelling vision for the future of learning. The campus represents an ecosystem that interconnects buildings and spaces with the natural landscape. Its design compliments VERSO’s sense of flow and movement, creating an integrated and interdependent network of zones, levels, and spaces where learning is limitless.
VERSO’s unique ‘loops’ create a powerful sense of opportunity, freedom, and movement for all students. The loops enable learning to transcend the confined nature of traditional classrooms. Students and teachers work together in a variety of uniquely designed spaces that support independent learning, group work, and full-scale projects, as well as quiet spaces for focused instruction, coaching and mentoring.
Lower Loop (Early Years 2 - Grade 4)
The conceptual design for the Lower Loop (Early Years 2 - Grade 4) was inspired by young children’s sense of discovery and natural curiosity. On the ground floor is a carefully designed Early Years Zone which opens out to the playground and the learning garden. Students from grades 1 through 4 share a purposefully designed suite of flexible classrooms, learning commons, and studio spaces for art, science and design. The Lower Loop also has its own indoor pool and multi-purpose gym.
Middle Loop (Grade 5 - Grade 8)
Our Middle Loop (Grade 5 - Grade 8) is designed for the energy and enthusiasm of this unique age-group. It is a building that offers students a wide variety of learning spaces to support not only their different learning styles, but also their social and emotional needs as young adolescents. The Middle Loop includes flexible classrooms, learning commons, active spaces, science labs, maker spaces, and communal areas where larger groups can gather for assemblies, presentations and performances.
Upper Loop (Grade 9 - Grade 12)
Our Upper Loop (Grade 9 - Grade 12) offers high school students a sophisticated, college campus-style environment that will inspire them in their passionate pursuit of rigorous academic courses and programs. A wide variety of learning spaces designed to meet these particular needs include flexible classrooms, project spaces, learning commons, university-level science labs, design labs, maker spaces, and various community spaces.
