GCH Site II. We need a design of an elementary Montessori School for grades 1st-5th. The building is approx. 3000 sq/ft and was a flower shop. The building is in good shape. There is a Cafe, bathroom and small office already in this building. The rest is open space. We need to create two classrooms. We need to additional bathrooms as well and they can go anywhere. Also, we need a multipurpose room designed adjacent to the current Cafe. There should also be a reception area for parents to drop off there kids and get information. Also, we need an outdoor open air classroom created in the outdoor space approximately 600 sqft.
Consider keeping the bathroom where is it currently and adding two more near the current to keep the price down. The Cafe cannot be removed and the multipurpose room should be adjacent and accessible to the Cafe. We should be able to access the classroom, Cafe, multipurpose room from the reception area.
We are in eco-friendly Green school so consider eco design options. No carpet and soothing colors like blues and purples on the walls. Bamboo flooring is recommended. Lots of window for natural light. Keep the front door where it is currently. YOu can remove the cold refrigerator room in the back of the building. The classrooms should be about 800 sq/ft and multipurpose room can be about 400sqft.
It is important that the design is green and maximizes the usability of the space. Affordability of the design is also important which is why utilizing what is currently there is important.
