A campus to enhance arts and science programming and bring classroom learning outdoors.
MKThink redesigned a private K-2 campus to support expanded arts and science programming. Located in a residential neighborhood, the school needed a campus design that would fulfill the needs of faculty, students, parents, and neighbors. The MKThink team conducted focused stakeholder engagement, which informed the resulting campus plan.
The campus features a central courtyard that offers an outdoor classroom and is equipped with provisions to ensure child safety and reduce noise to residential neighbors. The facility includes a small performance theater and doubles the previous square footage devoted to classroom space.
