St. Lucas Lutheran School STEM Lab

Advancing the Young Minds of Tomorrow | Milwaukee, WI

This project remodeled two existing classrooms to create a middle school STEM Lab which can be subdivided with glass overhead garage doors into a work area (with dust & fume removal systems) and a computer lab that can also serve as a regular classroom. Glass overhead doors provide flexible separation of the spaces while maintaining observation and supervision. The perimeter walls around the STEM rooms were extended above the ceilings to provide acoustical separation.

Since this existing space is on the top floor of the school building, the power tools were mounted on a custom designed vibration isolation pad to minimize noise transfer.

Finishes in the spaces were all updated to provide a more contemporary palette of colors and materials that the school will be continuing throughout the remainder of the building. The most visible aspect of this remodeling is the new window in the corridor wall that allows the STEM Lab to show-off its exciting curriculum to the younger students in the school.  Prominently located in this display window is the Lab’s 3-D printer on a custom designed turntable to allow both access from within the lab and display to the rest of the school.
