This new elementary school was designed to replace an existing facility on the same campus. Phasing was critical to allow the school to continue in existing spaces until new classroom wings were complete. The program consists of the normal educational functions for a K-1 elementary school including classrooms, administration offices, media center, cafetorium and special classrooms. The facility is organized around a significant entry element as a beacon to the community. The media center is also created as a crystal lighted form to encourage student usage.
