Franklin Elementary School - New Makerspace Building & Yard Improvements 

The Makerspace Building at Franklin Elementary School is the first building in the reimagined masterplan for the campus. This building is designed as the generator for the school, providing a space to think, create, and realize ideas. The central location, building orientation, fluidity of spaces, and materials all combine in a way that defines this building as a space for creativity and pushing the boundaries of early education.

The creation of this new space triggered shifted several play spaces on the existing playground and triggered a larger set of upgrades and improvements, including new hard surfacing, new turf field, improved access for fire and emergency response, and updated playground equipment. This playground is open to the Santa Monica community outside of school hours, and the updates were vetted through multiple community meetings.
