The Swiss International Scientific School of Dubai (SSID) welcomes more than 2000 students, and makes their well-being its priority. Its ecological campus was designed by experts in the field of building energy optimization. Filled with natural light, its classrooms, libraries and laboratories are designed to motivate children and support their learning. 
The school aims to provide students with a comfortable and healthy environment, and therefore the best working conditions.
SageGlass electrochromic glazing was chosen for its ability to provide a comfortable working environment for students, and to preserve the spectacular view of Dubai's skyscrapers.
By modulating the amount of sunlight and heat entering the building, SageGlass significantly reduces energy consumption and air conditioning requirements, while improving the comfort and well-being of people. In 2015, the school obtained the MINERGIE label, a renowned Swiss environmental certification.
