2000 SF . 2014-2016
A multi-phase project:
1) In the Building 1, we renovated an existing basement into a large, open, bright, free play area. We also created two additional classrooms on the second floor.
2) Designed an attractive, wide, steel staircase at the back of Building 1 in order to provide the second exit required by building code.
4) In Building 2: we added 4 classrooms including a dedicated space for science exploration. Additional exits were also provided.
5) In Building 3: we renovated unused space on the upper floor of a former mill building built into a hill. The new design integrates the two sides of the floor around a central stair, and provided classrooms and bathrooms. Careful calculations made it possible to provide three distinct exits from this floor for students and staff safety.
