AIM Academy

This project demonstrates the value of retaining historic buildings and repurposing them, while retaining original materials. The facility contains nontraditional classrooms for collaborative learning, an arts / music wing, cafeteria and global resource center. The interior design includes carpet with 65% recycled content, reused light fixtures and abundant natural light. Exposed brick walls create a warm historic background contrasted against bright colors and furnishings to create a unique, stimulating environment.
