Pre-K Center Q378

Purcell Architects recently completed the design of a new 12,000 sq ft Pre-K center in Queens, NY. The project consisted of gut renovation of a single story commercial building.
A new aluminum and glass store front with Hurricane resistant laminated glazing replaced the existing masonry wall to allow for maximum light to enter the building. Decorative, transparent, film was applied to the glass. A clearstory was designed on top of the classrooms to bring in natural light. The existing structure was used to enhance the space by exposing and painting the horizontal and vertical structural elements.
The floor plan contains an entrance lobby with a security desk, Administration suite, Community/Parents room, six Pre Kindergarten classrooms with dedicated toilets, Exercise room ,Warming Pantry, Grounds storage and miscellaneous support spaces.
The new penthouse on the roof was clad with metal panels to complement in shape and color the decorative film on the glazed facade. A vinyl fabric canopy over the front facade also helps enhance the entrance .
The parking area at the front was transformed into a fenced in play area with color full protective safety surfaces and play equipment.
