Modernization and Renovation Project
Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles
2014 - 2015
With a vision of incorporating 21st century teaching methods and technology, Bellarmine-Jefferson High School teamed with CSDA to renovate and modernize 1,850 SF of existing library spaces into high performance, flexible learning spaces for their High School community.
A 21st century collaboration space and student union was designed for breakout learning and multi-discipline collaboration for before, during and after-school. The library was reimagined with flexible work areas to accommodate small and large collaboration groups and a technology hub called the “thought spot” was added as a Central gathering space for more intimate project presentations and collaborations. Learning nooks were added at the periphery of the space to allow for small groups of up to four to gather and work while oversized seating benches were installed along the exterior windows to allow for individual learning opportunities in the diffused sunlight.
