TOWN SCHOOL FOR BOYS RENOVATION EVALUATION
A facility reinvented as a teaching tool resulting in a dynamic, demonstrative learning environment
MKThink evaluated user patterns in the existing facility; identified how the facility supported or restricted academic functions; and designed new, more effective teaching spaces. Logistically, developed a phased strategy for internal reconfiguration and modest expansion, and facilitated a temporary relocation to the Palace of Fine Arts for minimal disruption and student attrition. Every detail of the new educational spaces was considered, from scheduling and right-sizing classroom spaces to spatial typology creation, to accommodate a dynamic 21st-century curriculum. A restructured schedule maximized utilization and minimized latent space, complementing Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) classrooms, collaboration space, and a new commons area.
