Enteros Design worked with Colonial Heights Public Schools to design an addition to the existing North Elementary School to provide space for an interactive, modern media center. The new center includes a reading room, story time space, offices, a workroom, conference room, and computer lab.
Additionally, the design includes a new front entrance to the school that includes a security station with support space and a connecting corridor to allow student access. Finishes are being chosen that appeal to and inspire the young school students. The reading room includes a large clerestory space to allow for daylighting deep within the reading room. To ensure the new space is 21st century ready, a number of audio-visual components will be incorporated to enhance the learning experience.
