Learning Center, Gym and Design

PROJECTS - ELEMENTARY

Elizabeth Meyer Early Childhood Education School

Skokie School District 73.5
 
Skokie, Illinois

The Elizabeth Meyer School was expanded in 2017 to add much-needed space.  A new learning center, gymnasium, six classrooms and an art / music classroom have been added.

The new Learning Resources Center provides flexible seating and shelving units for various groupings of furniture to be arranged for both larger and smaller groups to gather. The curving and circular layout of the furniture is also reflected in the patterns overhead. Meeting tables can be clustered into groups of three which allows up to six students at a table.

 

A raised platform at the window bay provides a presentation area for special events. However, that area can also be easily transformed into a comfortable reading area with beanbag seating.

 

Another larger presentation area with a technology wall is featured near the circulation desk. A puzzle piece table is featured near the entry to the Learning Center and provides students with a makerspace that can support up to eight students.
