The Avery Parsons School project was an addition to the undersized facility for elementary and middle schoolers. Working with TAB Associates, we enlarged the school by almost twice its size and provided much needed outdoor recreation spaces. One of the challenges was how to accommodate the different ages of children using these play areas. What we came up with was an elevated area from which teachers can oversee the kids’ activity which divides the kids in age and activity level. A separate play area was provided for kids far too young to interact with the others.
