Designed to support differentiated instruction, the new building incorporates small group instructional spaces into the floor plan common areas so that they can be shared by adjoining classrooms. The integrated lunch shelter and retherm kitchen located on the lower floor creates a new node of campus activity, while freeing up much needed outdoor play area and reinforcing campus circulation patterns. The campus’ existing 50s architectural style is adopted by the new building, these features include: cement plaster, long linear roof overhangs with exposed outriggers and full height aluminum storefront windows. The new building’s facades are contextual yet slightly more modern by using exposed steel beams in lieu of wood outriggers. Ribbed metal wall panels will add visual interest and help breakdown the massiveness of the two-story construction.
