Carlin/White Associates designs a wide variety of building types, in many cases for single, or highly specialized use.

Such projects, such as the Lakeview Montessori School illustrated on this page, require a keen understanding of the work and disciplines that drive the design of the building.

The success of Montessori schools is attributable to a unique educational program that places emphasis on the child's individual needs, and on early education designed to cultivate a child's natural desire to learn.

In a Montessori program, a child gains an early enthusiasm for learning by pursuing their own individual interests according to their individual and personal abilities.  This approach gives the child a foundation where they can develop to their fullest potential.

It is a self-paced curriculum that utilizes highly specialized materials and a system of education that is both a philosophy of child development and a rationale for guiding such growth.  It is based on the child's developmental needs for freedom within limits, as well as a carefully prepared environment.

The architectural challenge in designing that environment is to design a building that supports the environment's role in a child's development.
