Pinecrest Academy Charter School is a K-8 public school for 900 students.  Funding for construction was provided by a private developer.  The school was designed to utilize an existing vacant shopping center which included three gray shell buildings.  Constrained by the existing configuration, the site design responds to the pedestrian and vehicular circulation, exterior curriculum, safety, and security requirements of a school.  The interiors are designed around central double loaded corridors to maximize efficiency and security.  The interior finish colors promote cognitive thinking and reduce stress.
