This Montessori school is located in Ashburn, VA. Among the design challenges was the need to create a solution for a 14,000 square feet facility without causing the building to be out of scale with it's surroundings. The Montessori Academy at Belmont Greene wanted their building to be a friendly and inviting place for children. The layout is focused on the Montessori teaching concept with creative spaces and effective circulation in mind. These concerns are carried through the entire project from the parking lot to the playground. Colors and materials were selected to support these concerns.
