As part of the district-wide redistricting plan, TSKP STUDIO designed a renovate-as-new for 530 students in grades Kindergarten through 4th grade. The project consists of 51,000 SF renovation and 19,000 SF expansion. When walking into the school the students are met with a welcoming daylit atrium reminiscent of walking through a forest. When the sun shines through, the shade of the trees is cast upon the floor. The school’s internal circulation was improved, code compliance was addressed and the design created additional classroom, small group, and special education spaces, art, music, band, orchestra, and pupil services and an expansion to the cafeteria. Two brand-new age appropriate playscapes are available for the students and community. The site now is ADA compliant and pedestrian friendly with separate parent pick up and drop off and bus loop, and handicap ramps and crosswalk are appropriately located. The rain garden stormwater management in the center of the bus loop is panted with low-maintenance native grasses and herbaceous plantings.
