1801 CIS Perspective 02.jpg

The experience of the Cayman International School emerges from research in child growth and development to create spaces that expand our idea of educational environments and encourage exploration amongst students and staff.


OLA, in collaboration with DECCO, has been commissioned to lead the landscape design for the expansion of the Cayman International School (CIS), which serves the Camana Bay community and Grand Cayman at large. The expansion of the 13-acre campus includes the addition of an early childhood development facility and a new high school. At the heart of the two new buildings, a central plaza creates a unique social destination on campus. The new plaza will include planted flexible space with various seating areas, offering opportunities for social engagement, performances, dining, play, and moments of respite.


The design creates connections to existing and proposed buildings, creating clear spatial hierarchies that incorporate a variety of landscape typologies and establish inviting outdoor spaces for students and the staff. A bold natural landform with a serpentine accessible path ensures that all children can engage in play, while a series of palm groves and native trees provide a shaded environment for students to experience nature. Other key elements include a tricycle track, club house, splash fountain and pump, climbing structure, and social seating nooks.
