BKL ARCHITECTURE | DARRIS LEE HARRIS PHOTOGRAPHY

This private school in Chicago serves 650 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. The building is arranged to maximize daylight and views, and a playful, modern aesthetic is apparent from the hallways to the science lab. Centrally located common spaces are designed to bring students and teachers together. These casual, engaging settings employ iconic furnishings to add pops of bold color. Private and miscellaneous offices take their cues from the bright, lively color scheme and light scale used throughout.
