Haynes Middle School

The E.L. Haynes school is a forward thinking learning institution In Washington D.C., and we were approached towards the end of construction of their new wing, in hopes to add a special design element that would make the school stand out. Working within tight budget constraints, we chose an existing element in the building – the lights, to manipulate and create an extraordinary experience.
