about the project
The Sheldon Early Childhood Academy, completed in 2017, is a 2 line cafetorium space serving 350 preschool age children. Our design team developed a graphic facelift for the existing Child Nutrition area.
Our design transformed an existing soffit & colonnade into a multi-layered keebler style tree with woodland cartoon animals interacting within the trunk & canopy. Branded as the “Cubaroo’s Honeyshack” after the school mascot, this preschool nurtures the young honey-cubs as they leave their home den.
The serving line entry doors were transformed into the honeyshack treat shop, complete with shelves stocked with all things honey inspired. The exit gate was transformed into a set of tree trunk pocket doors.
