St. Mary's International School

Location: Tokyo Japan
Project Type: Independent International School
Size: 1,200 Students, K-12, 180,000 sf
Completed prior to Peter Brown Architects
Planning Consultant: Perkins+Will
Scope: Programming, Facility Design Guidelines
Located in a densely built residential area of Tokyo, the SMIS campus faced limited programmatic opportunities on its landlocked site. With buildable area constrained by zoning, the school looked at strategies to improve facility utilization, land utilization, and program opportunities. Sustainable strategies of daylighting, natural ventilation, and green roofs work together to enhance both student and building performance. Produced in collaboration with Tokyo-based Edward Suzuki Architects and Archinova Associates.
