Jackson Creek Elementary School

Columbia, SC

This flexible, 21st century learning environment arranges grade levels into “neighborhoods” with central learning hubs and collaboration rooms shared by five to six classrooms. A bright, energetic color palette creates a welcoming space for young building users with geometric floor patterns and accents; colored glass on the daylit entry tower recalls Frank Lloyd Wright.
