Entry Description

The Oxford elementary School was designed to showcase the school's story and culture, promoting school spirit and values. An energetic narrative is incorporated throughout with the use of brand colours, illustrative murals, bold wayfinding and signage that playfully communicate information. A student affirmation mural is proudly read aloud each day. Four school house brands were developed, each with their own theme. Points are awarded to each house through an interactive installation encouraging student engagement. Thoughtfully created features for non-traditional learning spaces.
