Engineered bamboo meets education in this story of how an international school went "big bamboo".
A school campus, home to the German and French schools is located in the Yangpu district of Shanghai and is being labelled as one of the jewels of the district.
A primary design feature of the Eurocampus, is a consistent, modern, engineered bamboo detail throughout the interior and exterior outfit. altPlus worked with the lead Design Consultants and Ownership group to take the design from concept to operation. The school is a benchmark for performance engineered bamboo materials in an education setting, providing daily, a warm, calming and focused learning experience to students and teachers alike.
Engineered Bamboo Solutions
altPlus was consulted with to specify and design the features that could be realized in engineered bamboo, thereby ensuring a story of sustainability, health, and performance was consistently displayed throughout the statement project.
