Project Features

  • The topography of the site drops off in the back, offering views to a heavily wooded area.
  • Divided into four age-group areas – teens (in high school); tweens (7th-8th grade); hot shots (4th -6th grade); and cadets (2nd and 3rd grade) – the facility offers each group its own indoor and outdoor space.
  • An art studio supports clay, painting and drawing work. Overlooking the woods beyond, a covered outdoor balcony delivers inspiration.
