As a continuation of the district wide redistricting plan, TSKP STUDIO performed a conceptual planning study to determine the feasibility of expanding and renovating the Buckley School to accommodate 375 students in grades K-4. The project required a 55,000 sq. ft. renovation and 9,000 sq. ft. expansion to create additional classrooms, a small group study area, new cafeteria and specialized spaces for special education, art, music and STEM.

The design creates a new prominent main entrance featuring a solar flower planted within a field of sunflowers to create a learning opportunity and highlight the school’s Net Zero Energy goal. The design takes advantage of the school’s existing energy efficient features like the north-south facing windows and open space to create a geothermal well field along with new technologies like bipolar ionization. Current EUI estimate is less than 23.
