Vega Collegiate academy

Felt Right was proud to partner with Vega Collegiate Academy, a Colorado-based charter school with a focus on creating academic opportunities for students with a wide range of economic backgrounds. Our collaboration was based on a renovation and re-purposing of an existing building to serve as a new home for the school, by creating a dynamic environment which utilized high-performing materials that helped with organization, acoustics, and the elegant display of student work.
