Nishkam High School

United Kingdom

BAM built a new 700-pupil multi-faith, Sikh ethos high school in Birmingham. The project utilises Nishkam’s philosophy of serving others without expectation or recognition. The community provided ten per cent of the labour and materials, free of charge, as an act of devotion. BAM Design detailed the architectural, structural and services to this neo-classical design, featuring a grand concave entrance which gives immediate views of a large triangular spiritual space which is flooded with natural light from a transparent roof.
