QUAIL HOLLOW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Wesley Chapel, FL
Completed August 2015
The transformation of this former prototype school design consisted of a major renovation of the existing building, and an addition of a classroom wing. The project included the demolition and replacement of interior partition walls, doors, windows, and ceilings. We created individual classroom layouts to transform the existing open plan concept from the mid 1970s. In addition, The school incorporates two large collaboration spaces for various groups; these centrally located spaces are flexible and allow for evolving programs.
Our goal was to offer the children and school staff a safe and vibrant environment to foster student learning. Formerly, a mostly windowless building is made to be bright and vibrant with new window openings and strategically placed glass corridor walls to allow natural light to penetrate deep within the building. The use of color and geometrical elements on walls, floors, and ceilings were used through out the interior spaces to create a strong learning environment.
