Project Description

Douglas Park Elementary School is one of four new schools designed by Fielding Nair International in Regina, Saskatchewan, all crafted to nurture 21st century learners and support Regina Public School’s Structural Innovation initiative. This LEED Gold school features educational spaces of many sizes: Learning Studios with Quiet Rooms, Small Meeting Rooms, and Seminar Rooms. Students are grouped into Learning Communities that give teachers the flexibility of choosing the right size and type of space for each learning activity.

Additionally, the spaces in each Learning Community have been designed for maximum flexibility, many with roll-up glass doors that allow classrooms to open to adjacent areas. There is a teacher collaboration workroom in each, where teachers can plan interdisciplinary 21st century curricula. The south facing school commons brings in warmth and daylight, and is also designed to support a variety of teaching and learning modes from small group collaboration to student presentation.

Acoustics were carefully considered, with ceiling units and irregular walls that reduce noise in the more open spaces in the school. Flexible furnishings and lighting are essential for the success of those spaces, and Fielding Nair International is providing continued Professional Development to the teachers so they engage fully with the possibilities these spaces can offer.
