Upon entering, one sees the cafeteria, the gym and the art room, each of which has windowed walls. Each grade is divided in a color coordinated fashion. The school’s hallways offer fun creative spaces for students to study, read and work together outside of the classroom. The classroom furniture is meant to be flexible and move easily for students with diverse learning styles. The cafeteria was designed for more than just eating lunch...the space can easily be transformed to accommodate student assemblies, performances and other school functions.
The ruby red Discover 4-leg chair and desk with built in book box nicely outfit each classroom. By utilizing Artcobell and HON Flock products, environments were created throughout the school’s hallways giving classroom teachers an alternative teaching space. Artcobell convertible benches were used in the cafeteria as tables and benches. The convertible bench easily and quickly reconfigures for auditorium seating.
