Hartsbrook School

The design of the Early Education Building began with a stakeholder “charrette” at which we solicited input from board members, the building committee, staff, teachers, and parents.

In response, the footprint for the building was carefully sited to create an enclosed play yard for young children, while also defining one end of the older children’s playing fields. The floor plan used the internal corridor as a buffer to the older grades and situated classrooms to spill out naturally into the playground.
