JOHN C. DUNHAM STEM PARTNERSHIP SCHOOL

This innovative learning facility, which serves third through eighth-grade students from three regional public school districts, is designed to address regional and national deficiencies in science, technology, engineering, and math education.

 

The multi-generational STEM Partnership School includes eight classrooms, six laboratories, a STEM Forum, a multi-purpose room, a greenhouse, and a rooftop garden. In the classrooms, students work at tables that are on wheels so that they can be arranged into a variety of configurations to support different learning experiences.

The East St. Louis High School redesign is a remarkable transformation of an aging school building that repositions it for the 21st Century.

The extensive renovation and large additions for East St. Louis High School confirm equity and create a community of learning in a long under-served inner-city school district.  Our 10-year relationship with the district established our dialogue with diverse and often untapped voices, ensuring the building renovations represented the entire community.

A commercial building was purchased due to its central location in the fast-growing district and was converted to serve as the early childhood center.


Indoor Play: Discovery and play are important parts of the school. Play areas were designed to represent either classrooms or homes, where students can learn social skills as they use these spaces to pretend.


Classrooms: Restrooms were added in this commercial building and shared between every two classrooms.

MAHOMET SEYMOUR ELEMENTARY

The project includes Pre-Kindergarten through Second-grade levels as well as other renovations throughout the school. Storm shelters were designed throughout the school providing refuge if an intruder is present or severe weather is imminent. These storm shelters were designed as coat rooms and shared by adjoining classrooms, making travel time minimal.

 

The multi-purpose room contains whimsically colored window nooks at various heights to accommodate both the young and young at heart as spectators for the various activities. Spacious volume allows for freedom of play for all ages while large windows allow for ample natural light to filter in.
