As a place for education and connection between the young and knowledge, UK Academy is designed in a simple, yet modern and youthful way.
Simplicity plays as a significant highlight in the whole architecture, which displays through the efficient use of light color and simple interior. Elegant white serves as a dominant hue for the whole space, creating a modern vibe and helping to broaden the vision of observers. However, it does not cause boredom since furniture is featured with bright colors and appropriate materials, bringing a sense of liveliness to the whole design.
The art of using geometry is applied to the design of the UK Academy. The straight lines and angles of square-shaped doors and windows, as well as square-textured rugs, provoke the feeling of safety and trust.
The extensive use of glass is one of the outstanding features in this architecture as well. The transparent glazing material replaces traditional thick brick walls to serve as internal partitions, helping widen space and create the connection between rooms. Also, the large glass wall of the facade serves as a barrier between inner and outer space, helping to create a link to the outdoor environment and providing the space with natural light.
