Ideally situated in the prime institutional area adjacent to the Expressway, Lotus Valley International School - Noida is spread over 12.5 acres with three separate buildings housing the Pre- Primary, Primary and Senior Wings. This vast campus comprising extensive playgrounds, well-manicured lawns, artistically trimmed verdure and beautiful plants and trees have created an ambience conducive for learning. This fully air conditioned international school replete with a 1200 capacity auditorium, cafeteria, playground, indoor and outdoor swimming pool, bowling alley, squash court, skating ring, library, gymnasium, art and craft facility with special amenities for the physically challenged students.
The three storeyed, Pre-Primary Block, comprising of 36 classrooms, broke new architectural ground with an unconventional design which can be best described as futuristic. The lower ground floor consists of a giant wheel of dedicated activity rooms radiating from a central hub which provides a utility space that serves as an assembly point, work and practice area, an open lecture stage or an amphitheatre.
The Primary Block consists of 50 spacious and colorful classrooms spread over five floors complete with hi-tech interactive boards, projectors and computers. The higher floors are reached through two lifts as well as through two different flights of stairs. The Junior library is well stocked with age-specific, insightful books. Special rooms have been provided for Dance, Western and Indian Music, Art and Craft etc.
The grandeur of the Senior Secondary Block is to be seen to be believed. It is unique in its design and provides unparallel architectural exposure to the children. The new Reception area is spacious with glass cubicles for the visitors and an expansive foyer.
The basic concept behind the design was to achieve a safe and controlled environment for students of all age groups and to enhance maximum day lighting and ventilation in classrooms. Emphasizing the image ability of the building moving towards courtyard through asymmetrical entrance, spiral path approach & hierarchy vertical plane. Vehicular movement is planned around periphery of school without disturbing student movement in the campus. Activity & classrooms are placed at different levels to achieve a non conflicting environment and easy accessibility. To avoid confusion service room, classrooms and activity rooms entrance is highlighted by different type of architrave. All in all, Lotus Valley has given a new dimension to educational infrastructure-almost an avant-garde.
