The first single-story Folia structures to be completed, the Hatch Kindergarten Triplex was erected, ground-up in a record eight-month timeframe. The three buildings are centered around a new outdoor play area that includes a playground, as well as outdoor learning environments that support progressive instruction.
The three buildings comprise five large, 1280 sq. ft. classrooms, all designed to encourage a variety of cooperative learning situations. Each classroom features a full restroom and sink and are conjoined by ample teacher prep space that offers visibility onto the classrooms and the playground.
Large and clerestory windows in the classrooms provide balanced daylighting, while operable windows and high ceilings in both the classrooms and the prep spaces stimulate natural ventilation. These wellness features not only improve teacher and student comfort, but health and performance* as well.*Collaborative for High Performance Schools, “Benefits of high performance schools”
