The comprehensive modernization of the original 1980’s Brywood Elementary School required reimagining the entire dated campus. Substantial reconfiguration of the interior was needed to meet the District’s cutting-edge Master Plan and Educational Specifications. Despite working within the existing structure, and a limited budget, the transformation was a success. Individual grade-level Villages replace the old Classroom wings, and an Innovation Lab, new Student Support Spaces, and redesigned library create a new Campus Hub. The newly created Campus Activity Center consists of the reconfigured MPR, expanded Food Service, and new Design Lab. This flexible learning environment encourages cross-collaboration teaching and will serve Brywood’s students and staff for years to come.
