The Christ Community Lutheran School is a unique, three-story, multipurpose center facilitating religious (K-8) youth and adult learning. Key concepts incorporated into the design include security and safety, student and staff traffic flow, future expandability, connection to daylight from all learning spaces, and maximum flexibility. All spaces are designed to foster collaboration, communication and creativity. The facility houses a childcare center, 15 classrooms, STEAM/robotics lab, computer lab, art room, administrative offices, flexible conference/meeting rooms, and a multipurpose commons/cafeteria to accommodate student educational and social functions.

Wide corridors allow for safe movement and feature fun “confetti” flooring patterns, collaborative breakout areas, vivid school colors, and geometric “fun” seating. Glass walls and doors provide connections between classrooms and increased supervision, as well as opportunities for combined grade-level group work.

Large windows throughout corridors and all classrooms provide ample daylighting and outdoor views to support student learning, spatial orientation, and mental health. Classroom color schemes involve light walls with a bright colored feature wall to create appropriate levels of stimulation and student focus.
