Mogavero Architects created a site and building master plan with the goal of building a ‘net zero’ facility.
Mogavero Architects created a site and building master plan that separates grade levels while demonstrating sustainable site development and building design practices, fostering student stewardship and a ‘green’ education with the goal of becoming a ‘net zero’ facility. Classroom facilities include computer labs, an art and music room, and ancillary and support spaces. The site plan includes intimate and large spaces, a courtyard for school ‘community events’, a regulation soccer field and an outdoor active play area.
Very large, existing, heritage trees on site were preserved and incorporated into outdoor ‘rooms’ that serve dual purposes for playing and teaching. Site circulation is balanced, with efficient parking and safe student drop off areas, coupled with sidewalks that are separated from the street as well as bike parking within the secure site.
