Milken Community School Architecture + Design Institute

Milken Community School Architecture + Design Institute

The Milken School's Architecture and Design Institute - awarded Best in Show by the International Interior Design Association - alongside its counterpart, the Guerin Institute for Advanced Sciences, provides a groundbreaking "MIT Fab Lab" that opens doors to exciting opportunities for students. The space allows students "to envision, discover, and explore skills and resources to shape the future with their own hands," says the client. This transformative, multiuse space emulates the School's dedication to both arts and sciences, featuring a cutting-edge innovation lab that immerses Middle School students in design principles that transcend disciplinary boundaries. With its doubled space, the flexible, open floor plan and operable glass walls foster connectivity among studios, exterior terraces, and plazas, fostering collaborative breakout areas. The abundant natural light in the studios provides an ideal environment for creative work to flourish.

"A hyper-functional, iconic, and beautiful campus-on-the-mount, made of extraordinary new places that will inspire students, faculty, and community for generations to come."
