Architecture Overview:

A new elementary school to accommodate 350 students in grades K-5.  Due to the tight constraints of the urban site, this facility is designed featuring various levels that step down the sloped hillside, while addressing programmatic and accessibility issues.  In addition to classrooms and art and music studios, North Hill features a multi-purpose space which functions for dining, and by means of a moveable wall, opens to the gymnasium which serves as a stage for student performances. North Hill is washed with daylight and features fun bright colors and patterns to invite children into the space and engage them with their learning environment.
