Lake Local Schools
SHD reviewed the OSFC District assessment to develop a master plan for community approval. We coordinated engagement of the local community to determine voter interest and direction for the final master plan.
SHD led a Future’s Educational Conference with the Community to educate them on how education is being delivered not only national, but worldwide in today’s school system.
SHD worked with staff members to developed preliminary space program requirements and OSFC guidelines for this new 135,850 sf elementary school (grades 2-6).
The overall design is based on Learning Studios, Open Flexible Learning Environments. The Learning Studios (classrooms) are designed with “garage doors” so that learning can be open, flexible and collaborative. The exterior has an outdoor learning space, along with an exterior tiered amphitheater. The design takes advantage of the views to the township park, which is adjacent to the site.
