01.UPK K692

Brooklyn, NY

Pre-K K692 was inserted into a one-story steel and masonry light industrial building located in a manufacturing area without any outdoor play or green space. The challenge during the planning phase was the lack of windows; only the street façade had exterior exposure. Because the building was only one story RKTB was able to incorporate into the design new skylights that now provide natural light to the classrooms and common spaces. An indoor common “happy space” also includes a green wall with a large skylight.
