A primary school’s new building is inspired by a global approach to learning.


 
The building’s circular plan was decided early on, largely because of its allusion to interconnectedness, one of Charter Oak’s core values.


 
An added benefit of the shape is the central courtyard, which accommodates an amphitheater, rain garden, and areas for gathering.


 
The new building is clad in a brick similar in color to its 1930s predecessor. The design incorporates generous glazing, connecting occupants to the outside. Windows are fritted in tree shape.


 
In the library, the same oak tree pattern is created from perforated metal screens, applied over the glazing. Leaf-shaped acoustic panels hang from the ceiling in the library and auditorium.


 
The auditorium merges into the central courtyard when its rear door is lifted.


 
Entryway colors in the curved corridors orient students; wood paneling lends warmth to the main stair.


 
Open classrooms allow views out.
