Designing a school to be the heart of an engaged community
Since opening its doors in 1956, Bunker Hill Elementary has received several additions until the aging facility needed to be replaced to align with the district's engaging, collaborative teaching delivery model. The district engaged us to design a new campus in consultation with the community. Along with providing architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing, and interiors services, we led the community engagement process during the design phase.
Our team designed and built the new school on the existing campus while the elementary school remained operational, integrating into an existing site. Separate buildings were transformed into connected grade-level learning communities under one roof, organized around the library as the heart of the campus. We created views to the exterior through the library. Multi-purpose and flex spaces provide secure connections to outdoor learning courtyards. An operable wall between the gym and the cafeteria space allow for flexibility—opening up a large cafetorium for community programs and large events.
Not only can the community draw on the new campus for events and programming, but the campus also has an ample green space welcoming the neighborhood and providing queuing space for the bus drop-off.
