|Project Title:||Lake Hills Elementary School|
The new 69,000 square foot, two-story CMU block with structural steel frame building replaced an existing 41,000 square foot structure, which was demolished along with 5 portables. The culturally diverse student body at Lake Hills Elementary School served as inspiration for the design of the new facility. The two-story entrance foyer is filled with panels etched with a greeting in 21 different languages. The overall form of the building is a U-shape that encloses and protects a central student courtyard, which forms the physical core of the school. The desire to integrate a courtyard that would serve as a gathering place for students was a principal driver for the new design. Classrooms are large (about 1,000 square feet) to accommodate the variety of activities that occur throughout the day in an active elementary learning environment. Interactive white boards (Smart Boards) and LCD projectors are incorporated into every classroom. The school is both hard wired for data and has full wireless capability as well.
