Bringing quality learning environments to Saudi Arabia

Bond Bryan's education sector continues to grow in the Middle East with new Dammam school

Posted by Stephanie Broad | July 03, 2016 | International

The Al Bassam Elementary School in Dammam will open to students this September. Designed by Bond Bryan Architects in the UK, and led by the International team based in the Middle East and London, the school was delivered by the Al Bassam Group.

The School represents a great step forward in creating quality learning environments in the challenging and harsh climate of the Eastern Province of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 


Working closely with Al Bassam during the design process, the key criterion of creating quality internal space with good quality light was the foundation of the design, placing teaching space around a central top-lit atrium space. Adding colour and form to the exterior elevations gives the school distinction and quality in an otherwise bland suburban environment, providing a sense of place and pride in the local community who use the school.
