Elevating the Student Experience with a Light Touch
By infusing the space with light, JRA has improved the learning experience with an open, collaborative environment that better captures the spirit of the St. X brand.
Amplify the School’s Curb Appeal
St. X sought to make a statement to those approaching the campus with a more robust, dynamic, and modern exterior facade to help improve its stature in the community and establish a memorable presence.
Create a Building for Adaptive Learning
Technology-enabled classrooms and user-centered design afford St. X students an environment that provides efficient, effective, and customized learning paths to engage each student.
Improve Accessibility for All Students
Through careful consideration of space planning and design, we effectively reimagined the media center to provide a more accessible layout for students to meet or exceed ADA requirements.
By reimagining the entire media center and its access points, we connected the stand-alone space with an adjacent structure, providing students direct access to the media center without having to exit the safety of a building.
Today’s classroom environments must fuse traditional educational practices with modern technology, and our newly designed media center offers the conveniences of digital access to books, web conferencing, and plug-and-play furnishings and devices.
To effectively create a space that reflects the needs of St. X students, JRA conducted qualitative and quantitative research, including peer-site tours, to better understand the aspects of learning that resulted in a more holistic, on-target environment for learning.
