Education/School Buildings – robertLEEarchitects

For 20 years, Cindy Day has designed dozens of school projects ranging from small additions to massive renovations. She has designed more than 600,000 square feet and $100 million worth of school buildings. Her unique knowledge has come from serving on school board task forces and special training in learning styles and at-risk children. Her expertise is in large and small school buildings with highly complex renovations and additions.

robertLEEarchitects continues to utilize “IN” architecture design principles to inspire children to learn and be a community. Our school buildings almost always have welcoming commons with tall ceilings, natural light and comfortable furniture for students to gather with friends or quietly explore a book. Our learning centers make learning fun and an adventure with striking and colorful architecture.

The Principal at North Star Academy wrote of Cindy Day,

“Having completed six major school remodels and

 additions, I found school architects the least attuned

to children and how they function at school.

Then along came Cindy. … She truly understood children.

She also had a rare attitude — she listened.”
