Project Manager: Prithwish Gupta, AIA, DBIA
Berliner recently completed construction on a new 750-student charter school in Santa Ana, California. This two-story, 55,000-SF school serves grades K-12 for Magnolia Public Schools – an organization which provides a college preparatory educational program emphasizing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in a safe environment that cultivates respect for self and others.
The design incorporates standard classrooms, lab classrooms, administration areas, a multi-purpose room and gymnasium. With separate entrances for the upper and lower schools, the design allows for the older and younger students to enjoy spaces independent of one another. Interior glazing creates an optimal open learning environment that builds a sense of community and connection. The associated gym building is currently under construction and is set to open later this year.
