From the 2023 Architectural Portfolio: Boley Elementary School

Jan. 12, 2024
The project was recognized as an outstanding design in the Elementary Schools category.

After a devastating fire in 2019, Boley Elementary School in West Monroe, Louisiana, was rebuilt on the existing site in 2022. The innovative design creates a safe and stimulating learning environment through colorful windows, slanting walls, and cutting-edge interior finishes. Acoustical panels were used in these areas to absorb sound while incorporating pops of color. Throughout the school, the rooms are filled with colors to promote the playfulness and positivity that is ideal for elementary school environments.
