Working with the Turner-Agassi Charter School Fund, LUBRANO CIAVARRA is pleased to share a preview of the new 50,000 square foot building that will serve 769 Kindergarten through 8th grade students in the Bronx neighborhood of Clason Point. Amenities will include Gymnasium, Art Room, Science Lab and Library. The generous Community Play Space will offer school children and residents alike features such as a running track, sandbox, early learners play area, amphitheater, half court basketball and interactive community garden.
The design strives to integrate outdoor space to the spaces inside and prioritizes natural materials such as triple glazed wood windows and recycled rubber flooring. Inspired by a child’s sketch, the colorful facade breaks down the scale of the long rectangular envelope with faceted strips that fold the outdoors within.
