Flexible classroom design for Christ the King School was achieved through strategic placement of essential classroom components, bridging the traditional and high-tech. Use of natural oak trim, simulated oak laminate, fabric wallcovering, and painted surfaces form a respectful and comfortable home-like environment.
The teaching wall of each classroom includes a COST PER SQ FT$29.21FEATURED IN2003 Educational InteriorsINTERIOR CATEGORYClassrooms and tackable wallcovering trimmed in oak. Adjacent to the wall is a teacher’s cabinet that includes file drawers and a wardrobe. The teacher’s workstation and student computers can be placed at various locations in the room via power data outlets incorporated into a filler panel between the open-shelving cabinets. These units provide low storage for student access and protect upper tackable wall displays. A tall cabinet with nine flat file drawers and shelving provides storage for special and large items. Student lockers with cubbies replace old coat and storage closets and yield additional, covered storage cabinets above. The sink-base cabinet conceals a trash receptacle.
Wallcovering over cork provides for a variety of displays. The tack areas were detailed to allow the wallcovering to run horizontally, eliminating seams.
