Anchoring the community through a future-ready environment.

To support a new agrarian development, the new elementary school puts students first. The design defines the community’s values of growth and connection through interwoven indoor and outdoor collaboration spaces, a centrally located library, and public spaces for after hour use. Flexible spaces allow students to customize their learning environment. The site shares a border with the park and the bike trail that runs through the linear park, functioning as the main thoroughfare for the community.

One of the amenities of the development is the linear park that stretches the length of the development. The site shares a border with the park and the bike trail that runs through the park. This is one of the main thorough-fairs to get to the school via walking/biking.

The shared use of the school allows it to serve as a beacon for the community, creating opportunities for after-hours events and public forums in the gym and cafeteria. Secure public entries keep students safe while encouraging connection to the broader development.
