Design that connects educators, students and communities
The harmony between interior and exterior architecture is central to creating a school that honors both form and function. The sensitive and intuitive design of interiors is a practice we have been honing since our first school in 1940.
We understand that our first responsibility is to listen and observe. It is how we create seamless educational environments that anticipate the needs of users. This is why, before our very first school was even designed in the late 1930s, Larry Perkins spent weeks at a time in the classroom, observing and plotting in exchange for stories, to design an intuitive and revolutionary K-8 environment.
Our holistic interiors balance light, color and shape to create spaces that promote learning, collaboration and agility. Interiors have the power to convey missions and enhance community, to energize teachers and inspire learning.
