Project Spotlight: Benjamin Franklin Charter School

 

Project Spotlight: Benjamin Franklin Charter School

Its design inspired by the local pastoral landscape, the new BFCCPS building blends soft greys and whites with wooden accents for a scenic, stable-like aesthetic that reflects the school’s connection to its community and natural surroundings. This connection to nature also extends to the building’s daylighting systems, as the design’s reference to traditional agricultural structures is further enhanced by the use of Guardian 275® translucent wall systems with a Verti-Lite™ grid pattern that resembles that of wooden planks.

The Guardian 275® system at BFCCPS also features both fixed and operable glass glazing intermingled with the translucent panels, allowing for a mix of ventilation and glare control while also preserving the pleasant views of the school’s courtyard and surrounding landscape. Along with those benefits, studies show that natural light has a tremendous positive effect on a student’s wellbeing and academic performance, including being more awake and focused during class and having higher attendance levels.
