History in the Making
Nestled in the heart of the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle you can find the recently renovated Lincoln High School. A school as historic as Lincoln (originally opened in 1907) has ties throughout the Seattle area and PBS is no exception with Lincoln alumni being counted among team members’ grandfathers, wives and children (first new class!). With such personal ties to the project we wanted to have as much impact as possible by offering a variety of scopes including; markerboards, tackboards, corner guards, projection screens, and tackable wallcovering.

Modern Meets Classic
The intrinsic difficulty in renovating a historical building is striking the right balance of modern features with a classic look. One such case was the additional of recessed motorized projection screens in both the library and commons which allowed for large scale viewing areas with compromising the open aesthetic. Furthermore, the classrooms received a face lift adding Claridge markerboards and tackboards to improve classroom communication and collaboration. The high traffic corridors were outfitted with Forbo bulletin board tackable wallcovering which served as a means to publicly display pertinent information with damaging the walls. Finally color matched corner guards will ensure that the building remains in pristine condition for generations to come.
