Phase 1 Work In Progress

Set in a small town, Pragati Vidyalaya is a CBSE school for classes 1-10 for the students of Challakere, Karnataka. The 2.1- acre campus design facilitates a seamless connection between the classrooms and several open and semi-open spaces. With outdoor spaces like a football field, basketball court, and learning space for primary students, the school promotes learning beyond the four walls of the building. A combination of jaali and paneling creates a double skin on the south facade to cater to the south sun.

The entrance of the building welcomes you to a double-height lobby with a feature staircase.

The learning staircase focuses on a variety of the principles of 21st-century education — collaboration, flexibility, creativity, and wellness. It is a central public space shaping countless opportunities for students and faculty to gather and thrive.

The two central atriums welcome ample sunlight and facilitate ventilation inside the building, making a comfortable environment for the students to learn and develop. The south facade is designed with a combination of jaali and paneling to create a double skin that would protect the building from the harsh south sun rays.


The School Design Studio’s expertise has made it very convenient for us to entrust them with the responsibility of our school. The frequent visits to the site ensure the work is on schedule.
