How can a modest budget, existing prescriptive conditions and preconceived notions be reconsidered and optimized to provide the most useable, functional and appropriately expressive space possible for the flexible educational needs of children?
Questions seeking understanding, coupled with a process of emergent discovery often provide a clear path forward toward unexpected results. Such was the case with this small, but highly influential, education building in Henderson, Nevada.
Working directly with the client, zimmerraystudios developed a program, a form, and a plan that exceeded expectations. A simple, well designed structure made for efficient and cost effective construction. The contemporary, yet distinctive material pallet and form provide a lasting impression for the students, the congregation and community at large.
