  6. 6. thank you office remodel Collaborating for Cardozo: Existing Space
  7. 7. thank you office remodel Collaborating for Cardozo: Programming Phase How should it look? How should it feel? How should it function? These questions were the basis for us to better understand the needs and wants of the Cardozo parents, teachers and students for the new Parent and Community Resource Center.
  8. 8. thank you office remodel Collaborating for Cardozo: The Design Questions How do we take this existing classroom and transform it into a warm, relaxing, inviting place to learn, grow, mentor, seek guidance, obtain information, receive support, communicate, and socialize, while still maintaining functionality, sustainability, safety, and beauty? Not to mention, how do we create a multifunctional Resource Center within a small existing space?
  9. 9. thank you office remodel Collaborating for Cardozo: Schematic Phase This floor plan was a great answer to our design questions. It not only addressed the needs and wants of the parents, students, teachers, and clients, but it also addressed the need for a multifunctional space – by which we created three distinct zones: Café, General Area, and Lounge Area.

  16. 16. thank you office remodel Collaborating for Cardozo: Implementation
  17. 17. thank you office remodel Collaborating for Cardozo Imagine a warm, inviting place where parents can go to check their email or send an email to a teacher inquiring about their children’s progress. A place where parents can meet over a cup of coffee to discuss the joys and pains of raising teenagers. Or to discuss with a guidance counselor their children’s options after graduating high school. A place where parents, students, Cardozo staff and community members can attend workshops, seminars, classes, and other events to gather information, learn a new skill or receive counseling or encouragement. Thanks to a collaborative effort and the hard work of a dedicated AfH-DC project team, no one will ever have to imagine such a place.
