The Yards is an independent institution for people of all ages to learn and cultivate new life skills.
The school name stems from the meaning of “yard” – a piece of uncultivated ground adjoining a building, typically one enclosed by walls or other buildings – which closely resembles the architectural layout of the school. We developed a distinctive graphic treatment based on a creative grid inspired by the building layout.
