We are always excited to see designs translated from ideas to digital images and files to the daily transformation of construction. In Easthampton at the PK-8 Mountain View School, contractor Fontaine Brothers are capturing the daily transformation.
Key elements to look out for:
0:21 – Entry canopy
For a closer look at the elementary school entry, visit our blog post click here.
0:36 – First floor elementary classroom wing
Classrooms are designed for center-based learning with STEAM, literacy and ‘morning meeting’ zones; and flexible furnishings for individual and group work.
0:39 – 2nd Floor Media Center Exterior
The perforated metal screen installation at the media center incorporates the design of children playing and provides shading of the southern exposure light.
1:24 – Elementary Courtyard
Courtyards will be used for outdoor learning and recreation activities. Glass curtain wall at Elementary Street will reduce glare and add visual interest. Pattern follows seating area and stairs to maintain visual connection to outdoors.
