SCHRADERGROUP’s Bristol Township School District Projects Featured in Sherwin William’s STIR® Magazine
SCHRADERGROUP (SG)’s Bristol Township School District (BTSD) Brookwood, Mill Creek and Keystone Elementary Schools are featured in Sherwin William’s STIR® magazine (special issue 2018.)
STIR magazine is…
“…the resource that explores the connection between color and cutting-edge design. It examines the many facets of color to help you bring a fresh perspective to your work. STIR® is a print magazine and email newsletter for design professionals.”
In the article, SG’s Managing Partner, David Schrader, describes how the finishes in these newly constructed BTSD elementary schools are used to create an environment that is brighter, lighter, exciting and stimulating to the students using them.
The spaces in these massive buildings are broken up using colors and shapes that act as wayfinding tools for the users of the building. All three schools share the same floor plan but each school has a different unique color palette of its own. The hues chosen for the schools is soft-toned to create a calming effect on children.
SG’s goal for these buildings was to create an inviting and beautiful environment that the District and its children are proud of—and the reception of these learning environments has been extremely positive.
