This summer Hamlin Robinson School moved to it’s new campus on Capital Hill in the former T.T. Minor building. Hamlin Robinson is a private school that is open to the public that focuses on the educational, social and emotional needs of students with dyslexia and related language challenges.
After a year of sitting empty and years of prior use the building was in disrepair and needed attention in may areas.
A friend from the Eastlake neighborhood, Dane Jensen was the contractor over seeing the move and improvements to the school. I was inspired by the project both in the structure and history of the school as well as the mission of Hamlin Robinson. After touring the campus I knew that I wanted to contribute.
Over the next few months I worked with Dane to help select new carpeting and paint colors throughout the entire building. By the end of the summer the school has been transformed. In the fall, before the school year began, an open house was held for the parents and Capital Hill neighbors. It was wonderful to see the delight in the faces of the students as they saw the school for the first time.
Dane Jensen added some photo’s of the open house on Flickr.
