Wonder, discovery, imagination. The feelings of a child experiencing each moment of life are robust and alive. It is this essence of whimsy and the joy of learning that are captured in the design for the Tomball ISD Early Excellence Academy, a learning environment to serve the earliest learners of Tomball ISD. The design of the space is rooted in biophilic elements that evoke curiosity and connection to the natural world. With a design concept rooted in scale and growth, an immersive experience is curated as the learner journeys through the space. By thoughtfully curating the physical environment in a manner that engages the user in their surroundings, the learner and educator alike are afforded the opportunity to use the school as a tool for learning.
Secure outdoor play environments hug the building on the front and back facades. Interior finishes and planning have been carefully considered to ensure all learners are afforded equitable learning experiences. DLR Group provided architecture, interior design, FF&E, and environmental graphic design services.
