Kenner Discovery Health Sciences Academy

KDHSA presented us with a unique challenge: design a library catering to diverse student learning styles. The library, serving as the central hub for the school, required flexibility and reconfigurability for events, lessons, and student activities. Adhering to the Thornburg Metaphors for Learning, we strategically created single-person nooks nestled between bookcases and desks to facilitate independent studies. For collaborative learning, we incorporated mobile seating, stools, and tables that can accommodate 2 to 6 individuals. Additionally, we introduced desks and chairs with casters and lounge seating to accommodate lectures or guest speakers. Ensuring cleanable surfaces and cohesiveness with the school’s vibrant lime and blue colors, the result is a thriving library ready to host students, teachers, and guests for every educational occasion.
