School Background: An International Baccalaureate School, Northfield High School, offers a progressive, challenging and exciting academic program. NHS promotes an inclusive school community that encourages student creativity, self-awareness, independence, and collaboration among students with different interests. NHS teachers inspire students to become enthusiastic lifelong learners, problem solvers, and effective communicators.
The Northfield High School project team had two clear objectives for the Paul Sandoval Campus. The first was to create an environment that gave the students independence. The second was to provide them with open spaces to bring the diverse community of students together. The furniture was designed to compliment the architecture of the building, while providing a cohesive thread between the four campus buildings. Existing furniture that met the design and quality standards was woven seamlessly throughout the campus as a budget saving measure. All campus classrooms received new mobile collaborative tables and counter-height seating. Private study and small meeting spaces were created to utilize the numerous alcoves provided by the building architecture. The administrative area was updated with modern office furniture and functional storage solutions to support active lifestyle.
