The 36,000 square foot, LEED Silver, addition doubles the size of this neighborhood elementary school. The building’s massing and the masonry color palette complement the existing building. The functional program generally follows Chicago Public Schools design guidelines and modules with some modifications to fit into the existing site constraints. The two story addition features eight new classrooms, a computer lab, science lab, offices and a full cafeteria with standard CPS warming kitchen. Other amenities include: a new accessible entrance, elevator, vegetated green roof and playground. The site landscaping is lush with native plants, a garden and many sustainable design features.
