Falcon Middle School Learning Commons

Peyton, Colorado

Why

Connecting through experience of place.

Falcon is a small District northeast of Colorado Springs with big ambitions. The original focus of the project was to enhance safety and security by tying the front office to the building entry. To accomplish this, the administrative office and library areas needed to be transposed. The relocation of the library created the opportunity to re-imagine how libraries of the future will function, allowing the District to pursue the goal of transforming the library into a modern Learning Commons.

How

Ever curious. Ever learning. Ever improving.

RTA worked closely with Falcon Middle School leadership to create and illustrate a vision for the program on a short schedule. The new Learning Commons has become the central hub for the school where students can study, use lap tops, exercise creativity in the new Maker Space, or prep class videos in the Green Screen room. Large overhead doors invite students into the space from the corridors as well as provide an eye-catching view upon entering the building.

What

Purposeful, engaging solutions.

This project brought big changes and create a big impact for Falcon Middle School. Students returned to school in the fall of 2017 to enjoy this vibrant and energetic new space.
