Empowerment, connectivity, and creativity influenced the interior design concept for the Marco Island Academy. A coastal freshness provides the backdrop with the use of tonal grays, MIA blues, and blonde woods. Using color and texture throughout the building enhances environments visually, aids in wayfinding and adds excitement.
Energetic by default, public spaces have bursts of color that you wouldn’t find in more intimate settings. These pops of color break up corridors while also supporting the students in wayfinding. Adding zest, bursts of sunshine yellow infuses collaboration zones. Supporting the organic nature of the architecture, environmental graphics and furniture selections contain curves inviting softness.
Semi-public spaces are intentionally more subdued, allowing head’s downtime for those wanting a study break away from the hustle and bustle of main corridors. Collaboration zones involve playful nuances to encourage creativity and inspire unique out-of-the-box thinking. Providing a variety of seating options in most private settings creates a space that nurtures a wide range of individuals. Using natural colors and textures in these areas, inspired by the setting of Marco Island. Clean lines and straightforward seating arrangements minimize distraction allowing every student to have the best seat in the house.The interiors of MIA allow students to be their true selves while encouraging collaboration with fellow students, faculty and their community. MIA Students appreciate learning and understand that even once high school is over, every day presents a new opportunity for learning.
