One Step at a Time
Location: Baltimore, MD
Client: Krieger Schechter Day School
Services: Architecture, Planning
These projects for Krieger Schechter Day School, a Hebrew school in Baltimore, have three components:
Redesign the first-grade corridor to be inspirational and efficient.
Reconfigure the first-grade suite to encourage collaborative learning.
Create a MakerSpace for the school
The corridor design solution opens the dark, low existing corridor and creates an environment in which Hebrew alef-beis (letters) transform in scale to form places in the corridor. Places to organize personal items, places to learn about recycling, places for display, and places to have small informal learning moments.
The classroom space, originally three standard rooms, have been reconfigured to permit multiple spatial configurations; thus providing the flexibility to set up stations for the duration of specific units to be shared between the classrooms or open the area for indoor recess or summer camp.
