Agile Classrooms Empower Young Scholars
Oak Hall Lower School Enrichment Center

To further their mission of empowering students to pursue their academic, athletic, and artistic passions, Oak Hall School partnered with Walker Architects to design a new Enrichment Center for their K-5 lower school.

Our design created agile spaces to support new and dynamic approaches to teaching and learning, and leveraged the opportunity to create a new front door for the lower school campus.

The new enrichment classrooms and maker space can flex to accommodate multiple functions, for the classes of today and into the future. Large overhead doors between classrooms can fully open to expand teaching spaces and encourage cross-discipline learning.

Skylights, natural wood, and a nature-inspired palette help bring the outdoor environment into the building, making it a comfortable and versatile space where teachers and students feel empowered and playful.
