The program asked for three classrooms to occupy a large space with 15ft ceilings on the ground floor of the building with a lower level for support programming.  The space is organized around an L-shaped trough sink that develops into a social gathering spot and that also serves as a bathroom sink. 

Divisions between rooms are made with furniture to maintain flexibility so that the space can be converted for special events including performances organized by the school’s artist-in-residence.
