This new four-story secondary school building for 1,500 students on a 1.7-hectare campus was created after the existing building was demolished.
It is located on the corner of Maharaj Road. To the southeast are Ku Muang Canal and the flower market—one of the busiest districts of Bangkok—and to the southwest is the Chaophraya River, which provides both vista and ventilation. These elements were important factors in the master-planning phase and in the manipulation of open space. 

The concept derived from retaining the axis of the statue of Queen Prasripatcharindara, consort of King Rama V, and was designed as linked and connected open space to open the vista toward the Chaophraya River.

The architecture is characteristically modern yet tropically oriented and includes cross ventilation with good protection from the harsh sunlight via artificial wood screening, which also provides space for leisure and recreation activities.
Much thought was given to the building’s sequence, which included placing the administration zone close to Mahanak Road for public access. The classrooms are laid along the central courtyard, and the boarding students are housed at the deepest point, close to the river.
