Winner - AIA Wisconsin Annual Design Award
Barrientos Design & Consulting, Inc. completed the design of a new charter school and day care center. The facility houses 300 children ages 4 to 12. The three-level facility contains 12 classrooms, a large exercise room, library, music room, full service kitchen and dining hall, and teacher support space. Bright and bold geometric shapes can be found as design features both inside and out. The hallway walls boast brightly colored frames surrounding child-height windows peaking into the classrooms. Externally, the school is clearly defined with bold yellow red and blue geometric panels.
Overall, the design of the building is intended to be bright cheery and stimulation for young minds, as well as being a positive addition to the neighborhood.
