Brooke East Boston Charter School
East Boston, MA
The newest addition to the Edward W. Brooke Charter Schools network, Brooke East Boston Charter School provides an academically rigorous public education to students from the cities of Boston and Chelsea that ensures that they are prepared to enter into and succeed in college.
This project involved the comprehensive renovation of a vacant 1903, 30,000 sq. ft. school building and a 13,000 sq. ft. addition. The addition establishes a new entrance to the school and shapes an outdoor courtyard that is used for recess. Core academic and administrative facilities are dispersed throughout the complex.
Our design approach established a consistent interior character throughout the existing building and addition. With dynamic colors and extensive natural light, classrooms and corridors are energizing and expressive environments for learning. The project was designed and implemented on a fast-track schedule, and opened in 2014.
