Modernization and New Construction

 

This project, done in collaboration as Joint Venture Architect with Noll & Tam Architects, was for a small community school with a strong arts curriculum. Our scope included modernization of the site’s existing buildings as well as locating the new multi-purpose building. Both 2-story and 1-story schemes were considered. 

 

 

Prior to the project, the largest room in the school was 850 sq. ft. The new 5000 sq ft building houses a cafeteria, a small multi-purpose room, a library, and several resource offices. The design places kindergarten classrooms grounded at playground level, while stairs leading along a series of platforms to the upper floors enables older students to rise up and take flight. The community building is where all come together in the rehearsal for life.
