Campus renovation includes new color palette, historic photomurals, wayfinding signs, and graphic standards.
Santa Monica Canyon, September 2009–After several years of collaboration with the administration, faculty and parents of Canyon Charter School to develop a long-term vision for the school campus, Suisman Urban Design has completed its work on an extensive renovation of the school grounds and building exteriors. The makeover’s most visible feature is a vibrant new paint scheme that unifies the campus’s heteregenous buildings and integrates them with the exceptional natural setting. The new look also includes bold new signage for gates and classrooms, and an outdoor gallery of large-scale photomurals combining text and historic photographs of the school, which was founded in 1894. The renovation program has included new traffic safety banners and signage around the school’s perimeter, and an integrated graphic look for the school’s handbook and logo.
