St. Martin is a private Catholic Charter School in the City of Cleveland. We worked with the Teachers and Administrators to understand the needs of the education process for a student population 95% of whom is at or below the poverty level, and developed a series of spaces that allow for individual work, one on one tutoring, small group, large group, and entire grade level work. Additionally, the design focuses on aligning the physical space with the mental learning space. Campfire spaces for storytelling and sharing wisdom, Watering Hole spaces for student to student learning, Cave spaces for isolation and focus, and Life spaces where knowledge is applied to reinforce the understanding of the concept. Education is not fixed, and these spaces are designed with flexibility at their core. As a result they also have the ability to be reconfigured. The building design approach has been holistic, and while meetings with educators was occurring, so was day-light and energy modeling ensuring the classrooms of tomorrow were matched with a high performance building skin, maximizing the natural environment and ensuring minimal energy input from fossil fuels.
