Studies have shown that academic performance is reduced in classrooms where day lighting, indoor air quality and access to fresh air are substandard. Yet, these deficiencies are inherent to the portable classrooms we so often see today. It’s as unacceptable as it is UNNECESSARY. HATCH is designing a healthy and inspiring alternative. And we won’t stop there. Because that’s just the baseline. We want all children to have access to spaces immersed in sustainability, innovative design, and green technology. No child, no matter where they live, which school they attend, or how rich/poor their family, should be warehoused into an unhealthy, make-do space. Especially when it is within our reach to do so much more. The HATCH adaptables – designed from re-purposed shipping containers + pre-fabricated construction, are inspired, sustainable, and…truly relocatable. Watch for our prototype in 2013.
