Minneapolis, MN. 2013
1,322 SF. Charter school and office renovation.
The Avalon Charter School is a 25,000 square foot adaptive re-use of three 1950's era manufacturing buildings along Saint Paul's Central Corridor.
Collage's design maximized available light to create an interconnected floor plan. A temporary metal 'butler building' was retrofitted into a large, light-filled school commons as the focal point of circulation.
The design utilized simple colors and room shapes to accent the raw industrial character, creating distinctly unique spaces on an extremely tight budget.
