Perkins Eastman's collaborative spaces foster creative study in innovative international school 

Two additions to the Concordia International School campus, an elementary school and performing arts building, extend the vision of the school’s campus mater plan by creating a modern environment that fosters artistic exploration through improved interaction. The 6,000 sm (64,000 sf) school is a 500-student facility for grades pre-K through four. To encourage collaboration between students and teachers, a series of classrooms for paired grades can be arranged in a variety of individual and team settings. A striking combination of punched openings, storefront systems, and glass curtain walls throughout the school provide ample natural light and views of the surrounding campus. Anchoring the corner of the site, the 2,250 sm (24,000 sf) performing arts pavilion incorporates spatial and technological flexibility; enabling multi-use during and after school hours for the study of 2D/ 3D graphics, photography, music, performing and fine arts. A provocative centerpiece for learning and performance, the 400-seat courtyard theater and black box space is situated within an open lobby/gallery that transitions from the theatre entrance to a securable showcase area for student and local art shows.
