An important aspect that sets FKS miles ahead of other schools is the architecture of the buildings. While most others build their offices or institutions by forcing the environment to adapt to their needs, FKS chose the opposite route. FKS adapted to the environment and is built to be part of the land on which it stands.

The thought behind this principle is simple, yet powerful: we wanted to create an environment conducive to learning and at the same time, practice the values we cherish: of being environmentally friendly, of being constructive, not destructive, and most of all the sense of respect. The design itself addresses various aspects such as the existing landscape, keeping in mind the different age groups, climatic conditions, and the freedom yet secure space that is vital to its inhabitants.

The campus comprises three distinct building units, yet architecturally integrated to generate a cohesive whole. Our architect has restricted the intervention into the existing landscape to the minimum by allowing the topography to lead the architecture. Prominent rock formations, which are so much a part of the terrain have been retained to maintain the character of the place. The builders adopted environment friendly construction practices such as the use of unplastered, loadbearing-flyash (industrial waste), brick masonry walls, unplastered RCC surfaces. Another feature is the landscaping which is work in progress, where we incorporate a wide variety of fauna with agriculture patches, which play an important role in outdoor education for students of all grades.
