Milken Community School Guerin Family Institute for Advanced Sciences

The Guerin Family Institute at Milken Community School transforms dark classrooms into open space, embodying the school's values of curiosity, exploration, and mastery. This high-tech laboratory empowers students to bring their imaginations to life. With great flexibility, the space allows for endless configurations and easy adaptation to evolving technology. It's a dynamic environment shaped by the students and faculty who create cutting-edge technology within it. The approximately 3,600-square-foot Institute, features diffused glass skylights and overhead glass doors, flooding the space with natural light and offering expansive views to Sepulveda Canyon. This facility not only nurtures students' minds but also uplifts their spirits.

"The design created a seamless flow. Connecting learning to the magnificent scenery. Creativity and efficiency in every cubic foot."
