This arrayed plan is intended to help break up the massing of the 15,800sqm building, which will be located in a low-rise residential neighbourhood on the edge of the Rosslyn central business district.
"The school is designed across multiple levels in order to maintain open green space for recreation," said BIG in a statement.
"The building is designed as a series of classroom bars rotated along a single hinge point," it added. "The rotation creates cascading green terraces leading from the educational spaces of the school to the athletic field."
Each of the five classroom floors will lead straight out to a different terrace, increasing the opportunities for outdoor learning. According to BIG, each terrace will facilitate different activities.
The school auditorium and gymnasium, as well as other public spaces, will be slotted beneath the classroom blocks. These spaces will feature varying ceiling heights and will be accessible from the main street front, Wilson Boulevard.
The athletics field will be located on the opposite side of the site. Sunken courtyards and a covered entryway will be created in the two corners of the pitch by raising the ground into a slope.
