As part of the Measure Q projects at Huntington Beach City School District, Studio W Architects modernized Hawes Elementary School. The primary focus of the renovation was to implement a 21st Century learning environment in an overall effort to upgrade the classrooms district-wide to next generation learning standards. Hawes Elementary School also received health, code and safety improvements, such as those mandated by AB 300, accessibility and other systems/infrastructure updates.
The 21st Century classroom renovations provided new furniture and interactive technology to improve the learning environments and allow maximum flexibility in how instructional material is taught and presented. Specific furniture and technology were selected for each classroom space that appropriately caters to each grade level.
