Punahou Kosasa Neighborhood, Grades 2-5
Creative learning spaces for growing minds.
As part of the comprehensive redesign of Punahou’s Junior School, a new construction project for the grades 2–5 Kosasa Neighborhood, Office Pavilion Hawaii provided innovative classroom furniture that allows for movement and flexibility to promote learning and growth for the first phase of the project. Chairs, stools, mobile desks, mobile bookcase storage, mobile plastic bin storage, soft seating, height adjustable tables, teacher stations, and outdoor furniture were all part of the multifaceted landscape of learning to tap into children’s sense of curiosity and discovery in an intimate and nurturing community. VS, Certwood, and Eagle were the main product lines.
“As I have discovered, in this relatively new landscape of delivering agile educational environments, every facet of the process to envision, investigate, evaluate and implement now needs be managed in new and sometimes unique ways. Most importantly the people behind these systems must also begin work in ways that they have never before. Individuals at Office Pavilion were very aware of this required shift and responded accordingly by supporting the entire process with industry experts specializing in “Next Generation" environments. This unique approach is extremely evident in the final product at the Kosasa neighborhood. The tools that were integrated into the common language of the instructional as well as the built environment, seamlessly support the personalized learning needs within this extremely brilliant place.”
