“One of the things that we identified is that we needed more flexible learning spaces” explains Middle School Deputy Principal Chris Raymaakers. “We thought about flexibility within in a classroom, but also between classrooms, so we began talking about knocking down walls." Furniture was obviously another part of the puzzle to complete the whole picture and, as Chris expands, the design needed to incorporate the overarching ‘flexibility’ theme. “We wanted hard and soft furniture, some different shapes, different heights, different spaces “caves” etc. but we wanted the furniture to go all together in a modular way."
