Lincoln Elementary School Education Architecture Interior Design

Lincoln Elementary School

Client: Jacksonville School District 117






37,000 SF

Project Overview:

Lincoln Elementary had minimal renovations since it originally opened in 1952 and was in poor condition. The district knew a high-quality education involved the curriculum and learning environment and anticipated the school’s transformation would positively impact students. Renovations included two new entrance canopies, new windows, finishes, ceilings, LED lighting, Solatubes, a geothermal well system and a new school logo. Vinyl Enhanced Tile was used for durability and easy maintenance and vibrant color options. The original exterior stone blocks with the school’s name engraved were salvaged and reinstalled in the media center, along with new furniture and ceiling clouds. Cost savings measures included better systems efficiency and the focus on strict budget adherence on exterior upgrades allowed for increased interior upgrades to transform the learning environment into a vibrant, inspiring space. The principal has observed an improvement in the student’s appreciation of their school and their interest in learning.
