Ruth K. Broad/ Bay Harbor K-8 Center

Bay Harbor Islands, Florida

Miami Dade County Public Schools commissioned for a new classroom addition building to be incorporated into Ruth K. Broad/Bay Harbor K-8 Center’s existing campus. The scope of work involves the complete schematic design of a new three story building with a covered basketball court on the ground floor and classrooms on the second and third floor. Gurri Matute PA designed the interior classroom spaces, corridors and restrooms utilizing tiles, finishes and paints that are varying shades of blue and green. We wanted to create a warm and bright learning atmosphere for the children who would be using these spaces on a daily basis. Our firm drew inspiration for the color selection from the local wild life of the Town of Bay Harbor Islands, which has beautiful local beaches and tropical plant life.
