Designing the interior of this elementary school meant creating a child-friendly environment that would comfortably house 1,000 K-3 students, provide a sense of community and security, and enhance each child’s learning experience.

It uses a familiar theme of circles, squares and triangles ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONCOST PER SQ FT$95.00FEATURED IN2000 Educational Interiors2000 Architectural PortfolioINTERIOR CATEGORYClassrooms the architecture, interior layout, floor patterns and finishes. A sophisticated color palette emphasizes fun and function. Color coding from floor to floor and wing to wing creates a sense of identification for each grade level.
