The Robbins Elementary School is situated in one of poorest sections of a once vibrant city. The old stately building is not only overcrowded but scarred after years vandalism and fences and bars have been erected to fortify the school against the neighborhood. The proposed design more than doubles the classroom areas all in one floor in the existing carpark and playground and creates a new elevated playground area on the roof, eliminating the need for ugly fencing and security features.
