Private School Expansion PlanningCity of Pinecrest, Florida
Gulliver School expansion project envisions the transformation of the existing campus, focusing on creating a sense of community for students, administrators, and faculty. This is achieved by adding new buildings along the central pedestrian spine, embracing openness and integration. The planning fosters a stimulating and collaborative learning environment, emphasizing physical and visual connectivity through inviting thresholds, captivating gardens, and covered walkways. A new drop-off area, where most students arrive in the morning, is visually framed by the multi-story sports complex that projects a confident image with its progressive design. The students walk along a covered path surrounded by the new building, lush vegetation, gardens, and the classroom wing that opens towards it. Other programs included a parking garage building and slightly relocating the football field to maximize the potential for future bleachers and improved views.
