Child-Centric Campus Design
Jefferson Terrace Academy is a newly-built school in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The new facility is constructed utilizing a design concept known as 21st Century schools, which teaches that the physical environment must be intentionally designed to support academic achievement.
Grace Hebert Curtis Architects in collaboration with DLR Groups designed the school around how a child accesses and processes information.
The stunning new Jefferson Terrace Academy facility is a two-story, $32.9 million building with a campus that covers 20 acres of land. Designed to meet the educational needs of today’s children, the facility is full of open spaces and large windows. Instead of traditional classrooms, the new school has blocks of classrooms clustered around a common space and restrooms.
About the Solution
ASI was brought on to provide interior and exterior signage that would complement the facility’s architecture and child-centric design.
Custom, creative elements have been woven throughout the signage design for Jefferson Terrace Academy. ASI implemented creative interior elements including colorful lobby signage with cut acrylic letters.
On the exterior of the building, ASI implemented identification signage including colorful, large dimensional letters, an electronic message center and unique large, stencil-cut backlit panels in the shapes of children playing sports.
This stunning facility is open and bright and inviting for the students to return to, with clear and creative signage that compliments the facility’s design intent.
