Macon Charter Academy
Culturally, this school wanted to embrace a global diversity and to make sure the interior could appeal to wide variety of students and families.
Our favorite details here was the use of colors that we described as global cuisine, colors that naturally resonated with people as rich and flavorful: Eggplant, Saffron, Palm and Tomato. Then we used those colors in classic patterns in flooring and walls. Those patterns could be traced back to civilization 2000 years ago and could be seen just as decoration, or teaching tools.
Through the course of the design we were informed that James Brown went to school in Macon, GA so we wanted to make sure everyone would “feel good”! This project was a design-build project lead by Triangle Inc. in Grand Rapids, MI. Robert Doornbos was engaged as architect.
