A Tour of the Charles MacPherson Academy

Today the students are out of class to receive their certification for first aid. Because the classroom is empty, I thought I would take advantage and take some photographs so that everyone could see our Academy for Butlers and Household Managers.

My objective when we were designing the space was to provide a laboratory setting where each student receives a hands-on learning experience using all the tools and products of a fine home. The room is designed so that it can be altered into all kinds of teaching forums - from a traditional classroom setting to a laundry room, and from a butler's pantry to a fully stocked wardrobe.

The key to the room's success is its flexibility so that the learning experience of each student can be maximized. I hope these photographs help to convey that flexibility. I also hope you enjoy the tour!
