Design to promote Montessori's educational philosophy
Working with the owner, a new Montessori School Facility was designed to support a student body of up to 140 students and approximately 16 teaching and administrative staff. Montessori's educational philosophy is anchored around the notion that all students learn at their own pace. This notion was the key detail in every design focusing on flexible educational environments for both students and teachers.
The outdoor play area anchors the school's design. Every classroom is joined to the playground by a dedicated outdoor classroom that is utilized year-round helping to emphasize students' connection with nature. Aside from just creating the design, the owner was assisted through the entire process of entitlement, ensuring approval by all jurisdictions and acquiring review and approval authority.
