Architecture and design firm Godwin Austen Johnson (Gaj) has revealed design plans for the International Schools Group (ISG) campus that Rashed Abdul Rahman Al Rashed and Sons Group is developing in Saudi Arabia’s Khobar.

Gaj was appointed in 2018 to work on the project, located within Canary Vista, a residential community developed by Rashed Abdulrahman Al Rashed Group and designed by UK-based design firm Armstrong, according to a JLL listing of the scheme.

The campus, which will accommodate more than 2,500 students, will offer both American and British curricula.

ISG operates six schools across four locations in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia.

Commenting on the school's design, Gaj partner, Jason Burnside, said the school had been “designed to incorporate the latest aspects of modern-day" education.

According to details on GAJ’s website, the firm has previously worked on Sharjah English School, Gems Westminster School, Sunmarke School, and Cranleigh Abu Dhabi.
