Bamboo beginnings @ HCCS

bamboo courtyard

Studio G’s 15,000 SF addition for the Holyoke Community Charter School will reach substantial completion this week. The project includes a new library with an indoor reading room, storytelling area, computer room and testing center, five classrooms, support spaces and outdoor courtyard.

We’re especially excited to see the outdoor courtyard take shape. Complete with meandering path, contemplation spaces and lush bamboo plantings responsibly sourced from a local Massachusetts bamboo nursery, the courtyard will be a great asset to the school, which operates a summer session in addition to the typical school year. Special thanks to Bryan Forrette of P3 Project Planning Professionals ( for helping make our vision of this landscaped space a reality.

Stay tuned for additional project updates!
