A Modern Preschool in San Francisco


Karen Curtiss of San Francisco architecture and design firm Red Dot Studio transforms a warehouse into a cheerful preschool.

The San Francisco preschool Sweet Peas is housed in a newly renovated space courtesy of local architect Karen Curtiss.
"There is a triangle in projects between budget schedule and design," Curtiss says.
The interior is an open plan, but divided into different zones through furniture.
The project is the product of community involvement.
Benjamin Moore's Vintage Vogue paint coats the exterior.
Curtiss worked closely with contractor Jason Kotas and Samantha Dionne, the school's director, to overhaul the space.
