The modern, newly constructed building, comprised of an Infant & Pre-School, Elementary School, and After School & Parent Education Program, serves as a powerful beacon signaling progressive development in this high-need community. The unique architectural vocabulary incorporates a sustainable exterior corrugated steel wall system with brightly colored accents that add playful vitality to the design and enliven the street view. The building is nestled into the neighborhood’s architectural context and natural landscape through its respectful proportions and an expansive green screen extending along the east facade. A vintage brick masonry wall situated along the perimeter of the site was retained and restored to anchor the project into its surroundings.  Floor-to-ceiling windows at the ground level allow a visual interplay between the exterior and interior spaces.
