The design-and-build team puts the finishing touches on their new flexible classroom.

“Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people to change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has.” –Margaret Mead

Throughout this week on Design Envy, each of our posts will feature an aspect that we value greatly within our studio. Today’s post speaks to collaboration.

The work Studio H has done through Project H Design and REALM Charter School is not only inspiring, but truly makes an impact both on young people’s lives and the community in which they exist. 

When the students were asked to build a project together to help their community, they decided to focus on the community that they knew best—their school.

The students worked together to design and build flexible classroom space using discarded shipping containers. They cut, sanded and welded the new space for all the classmates in their school. 

The container classroom is an amazing example of the power of collaboration. Well done, Studio H.
