Robinson's Master Facility Plan
The Robinson Community Learning Center promises to be the focal point of its east-side neighborhood by creating an environment that is inviting for students and the community alike. The new building will accommodate 500 students in grades K-6 and is located northeast of the current school, where the playground was located. Most of the concrete wall surrounding the site will stay, and an "amphitheater" for outdoor instruction will be added. Landscaping will include shade, ornamental and evergreen trees, along with shrubs and ornamental grasses. Architects have designed a split-level building for maximum visibility throughout the neighborhood. The new site includes a lower-level entry for students walking from the south and an upper-level, main entry for parent and bus drop-off. The main entrance is located at the west corner of the "L"-shaped building. The two-story classroom wing provides separate, secure classrooms. Mutual-use spaces such as art and music rooms, a multi-purpose classroom, a stage, restrooms, and a gym are located to the center and north of the building. Students remained in the current school while the new community learning center was built.
All designs are the work of an
architectural firm from one of six firms, which comprise the Akron
Architectural Group. AAG architects work with Akron Public Schools
architects on each site. The architectural firm that designed the
Robinson Community Learning Center was Braun & Steidl Architects Inc.
John George was the Akron Public Schools liaison.
