The Hive has received a Citation of Excellence in the Learning by Design Educational Facilities Design Awards!

A place of discovery and community connection, this novel approach to a learning environment in Spokane, WA, features a unique collection of spaces, including maker studios, that can be ‘checked out’ 24/7. Its innovative use of simple materials and street front windows that put activities on display provides an underserved area with a welcoming place for creating and gathering.

Jury comments— “The design response of integrating the different programmatic needs is interesting and appears to be well considered. Transparency of the street façade is well suited to the functional program and interior activities as well as providing passersby with a view into the vibrant community facility.”
