Education

St Albans

Building Area: 14,544 SF
Building Status: Unbuilt

Touzet Studio designed the addition and remodel of St Albans Child Enrichment Center, one of the oldest early Childhood education in Coconut Grove. St Albans has been educating young children of all abilities for over 40 years. Touzet Studio is working with St Alban’s to help them raise the necessary funding to build their classroom. This project was designed with the goal of helping to expand their facilities and offer more services to the community. The Board and the Director of St Albans were very inspired by the simple and thoughtful design ideas to help teach children of all abilities at an age where it is critical.

Basecamp 305

Building Area: 5,583 SF
Building Status: Unbuilt

Basecamp 305 is an education facility to complement the functions of Basecamp 305 located at 224 Second street on Miami Beach and a master plan of a 13,000 SF parcel. The design stressed flexibility of program and spaces as the building could be used for upper elementary and middle school campus. The design includes a secure and private fence with two layers of access from the front and back. The fence was designed to complement the playfulness of children and the colors used at Basecamp 305. Resiliency and sustainability was vital to integrate through the whole project. Solar cells, rainwater harvesting, green roof and natural light in the all the rooms were designed into the architecture so that these steps towards resiliency could be seen by the children and they have a more transparent education of resiliency and sustainability.
