Rumson-Fair Haven High School and Spiezle Architectural Group, Inc. collaborated to transform underused teaching and storage spaces into a visually inspiring classroom that is accessible to all students. The World Language Lab is a space that all students will experience at some point in their time at the school, so relocating this important function from a cramped, lower-level room to a larger and more vibrant third-floor space enabled the school to expand the classroom in size while providing space for improved language studies.

Two existing classrooms and a storage room were reconfigured to create flanking classrooms on either side of the new, modernized lab. Soft, northern light pours in from clerestory windows and illuminates the warm surfaces of the interior. The room is finished with a warm wood slat acoustic ceiling. Linear light fixtures with acoustic panels, as well as absorptive flooring, complement the lab and create an improved environment for education. Contemporary desks and seating were chosen for comfortable, inspiring styling that creates an upbeat vibe for all Rumson-Fair Haven High School’s students.
