Notable Installations - Educational Facilities

Lincoln Middle School

The award-winning new Lincoln Middle School in Schiller Park, Illinois, was designed with an emphasis on experiential learning, stimulating curiosity, and inspiring students. The school was designed with dynamic, light filled spaces, and with places to gather, interact and inspire.

Connections to the outside environment are established through the large reading terrace and green roof garden off of the second floor library. In the central two-story atrium, a large Circular Luminous SkyCeiling provides a connection to the refreshing presence of overhead sky. The design team at STR Partners, the project's architects, created an engaging three-dimensional oculus to enhance the illusion of nature provided by the SkyCeiling.

Gulf Stream Kindergarden

Gulf Stream Elementary School

For most kids kindergarten is the point of entry to their educational careers. At Gulf Stream School administrators were looking for a design feature to provide a ‘wow’ factor in the kindergarten classrooms. They achieved this by installing Sky Factory Luminous SkyCeilings during recent classroom renovations.

The installations were done by Kaufman Lynn Construction of Boca Raton, Florida. Gulf Stream School is an independent private school in Palm Beach County, FL.
