Scaled to perfection
We feel it is important that schools for our youngest learners provide spaces that are welcoming and ease the delicate transition from home to school. Scale may be the most important factor in creating an unintimidating and familiar space. Scale means understanding details, from the size of the furniture to the incorporation of the appropriate technology. It could also mean organizing the facility into smaller, more comprehensible components better suited to small learners. Our primary goal when designing elementary schools is to promote the education of children in spaces that are supportive, welcoming, and safe.
