ZHIDA experimental school, located in Shanxi province, China, commissioned us to develop their brand and they complete visual and spatial communication. The school is mixing junior and senior students in two different buildings, connected by patios and external playgrounds. We use colors to structure all communication and classroom themes, keeping a red line to connect them all.
The entire project took over 2 years to complete, from an slot of land to many iteration of interior design and finally to a fully furnished school teaching over 2,000 students.
