Nap Time Just Got a Whole Lot Quieter
The Nest School by Perkins&Will is an early childhood education center designed pro bono and created for low-income families with parents currently looking for job placement, returning to work, or experiencing homelessness. But this state-of-the-art school proves that a small budget can deliver big design solutions. A custom screening system that closes when little ones need some down time is created with custom 3mm Wool Design Felt + Akustika valances and moveable fins. This custom screen creates visual privacy and softens sound in a room where inside voices may not be in abundance. And the installation creates an impactful design element that makes it clear that play is always the rule of the day.
