Project Background

High school education plays a crucial role in the national education system, serving as an important stage for bridging the gap between earlier and later stages. With the rapid economic development along with ongoing urbanization in Shenzhen, the growing population has led to a looming shortage of public school places, which becomes a pressing issue that Shenzhen has to deal with.

To alleviate the scarcity of high school places in Shenzhen, a public boarding high school with 72 classes — Shenzhen 36th Senior High School, is planned to be built in the central part of Hangcheng Sub-district, Bao’an District. This is the largest high school to be constructed in Bao’an District in recent years.

In this context, Tender for Feasibility Study and Architectural Design of Shenzhen 36th Senior High School is about to launch. The tenderee is Bureau of Public Works of Bao’an District, Shenzhen. The co-organizer is Shenzhen Position Spatial Culture Development Co., Ltd.

Design Objectives


It’s encouraged to thoroughly analyze site constraints such as topographical and traffic conditions, and adhere to the following principles: site-specific, rapid construction, adaptive to regional climate, environment-friendly and low-carbon, flexibility. Looking for high-standard and exceptional design, the project aims to create a high-quality campus with forward-looking and cultural characteristics, serving as a benchmark for high school campus development in the Greater Bay Area.

The project is confronted with 4 particular design challenges, and targeted design strategies are needed:

1.How to achieve a smooth traffic circulation between the site and Guihua 2nd Road.

2.How to create a hilly campus with enriching spatial experiences through adaptive design strategies.

3.How to achieve rapid construction of buildings while ensuring high quality and safety.

4.How to create unique and innovative school buildings with high quality in the Greater Bay Area.


Design Overview


Shenzhen 36th Senior High School is a boarding high school to hold 72 classes and 3,600 students. The total investment of the project is tentatively estimated at RMB 1,040 million.

The site area is 66,445.19 square meters, and the total gross floor area is 130,000 square meters. The construction content mainly includes: required functional rooms (including teaching & auxiliary rooms, offices and living & service rooms), selected functional rooms (including special-purpose classrooms, covered walkway, open floor, underground car park and mechanical rooms, etc.), teachers’ dormitories, outdoor supporting facilities, etc.

The project site is located in Hangcheng Sub-district, which is in the central part of Bao’an District, Shenzhen City. It has a walking distance of about 1.8 kilometers from Huangtian Station of Metro Line 12, and about 4 kilometers away from Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport to the west. The road traffic connecting to other urban areas mainly relies on the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Highway and the Beijing-Hong Kong and Macao Expressway.

On the east and north of the site lies the Fenghuang Mountain, while the west and south sides are occupied by industrial parks which are to be renovated. To the northwest of the site, there are educational facilities such as Bao’an No.1 Foreign Language School, Shenzhen Bao’an Vocational Technical School, and Shenzhen Oriental English College. The site lies in the unique hilly landscape of Lingnan Area, with a maximum height difference of about 34 meters, and the gradients of most slopes in the site are within 25%. The surrounding ecological environment is excellent.

Presently, the site lacks direct access to any urban roads, and the overall accessibility of the site is relatively poor. On the west side of the site, there is Guihua 2nd Road which is currently planned as a 16-meter road with one lane on each direction. The tentative elevation of the planned roads around the site is shown in the diagram below.
