As Johnson Elementary School’s faculty look toward its future, school leaders envisioned an updated brand that could be easily implemented school wide. TURNERBATSON was hired to develop ideas for a new media center that would showcase a new aesthetic. The center will serve as a catalyst for future renovations throughout the Jefferson County Schools’ campus.
The new media center offers diverse learning spaces and dynamic patterns and colors. While the Media Center is self-contained, it still has a multifunctional layout that provides students and teachers collaborative and individual learning settings. The furniture selection allowed for flexibility and participation. “The Cave” provides a quiet space for traditional reading, versatile tables allow for mentoring and group activities, and the multifunctional stage encourages group-led classes.
Students, staff, and administration have offered rave reviews for the space. “It’s a space that makes you smile,” said lead designer Mary-Claire Bennett. “It is so rewarding to design spaces that cultivate creativity and reinforce school objectives.”Back To K-12
