Gap Corporate Campus 901 Cherry

The vision for the new Chartwell School campus was to create an exceptional, high-performance learning environment for children with learning differences, including dyslexia. The design team concentrated on integrated design strategies proven to improve learning outcomes and sought to create a campus that would function as a teaching tool about sustainability while dramatically reducing the school's environmental impact.

Loisos + Ubbelohde worked with the architects to develop daylighting design alternatives for the classrooms, simulate the selected alternatives under clear and overcast skies using Radiance software and fine tune the daylighting design to provide visual comfort and significant electrical savings without increasing energy use for thermal conditioning.
