Hildreth Elementary School
Situated at the heart of the elementary school, the Library/Media Center creates a space that is open, warm, and welcoming for students’ first encounters with reading and information gathering. The design encourages students to see the library as the first destination on the road to knowledge. The two-story volume is at the center of circulation between classrooms, cafeteria, and gymnasium. It is the social hub of the school for students to pass through continually on their daily activities. A large two-story window provides daylight and visual connection to the public library across the street, encouraging students to engage with their greater community.
A maker space/science lab with a balcony overlooks the library, connecting the two spaces to encourage learning. Students will be able to perform experiments such as parachute drops that integrate learning in the space.
