PS32K Construction Update

We just returned from our bi-weekly site visit to PS32K in Brooklyn. The school’s renovation and addition is coming along nicely!

Below, the construction team takes advantage of the cantilever for some protection from the sun on this hot day.

Here, a storefront is installed at the new cafeteria, which will have sweeping views of the playground on three sides.

Although the building is a very active construction site, the concept of wayfinding through portals of color is already taking shape: yellow to the main stair on the right, coral to the cafeteria straight ahead, and teal to the library on the left.

The main stair is accented with yellow thresholds on each floor making circulation through the school very clear and bright!

Classroom corridors terminate in full wall of glass block and clear glazing washing each corridor in daylight.

Stay tuned for more progress!
