New Classroom Building and Campus Modernization
Healdsburg Unified School District | Healdsburg, CA
440 students | 39,216 sf campus modernization, 9,744 sf new classroom building
Designed to help facilitate HUSD’s plan to implement 21st century learning concepts district-wide, including inquiry-based curriculums, QKA modeled new and renovated teaching spaces as “Learning Suites” instead of traditional self-contained classrooms. Providing flexibility for differentiated learning, including large and small group work, each Learning Suite is made up of two classroom-sized spaces connected with a folding glass wall, a breakout space for smaller collaborative work and physical and visual access to an outdoor learning area. A public street that long separated the school’s teaching spaces has now been permanently closed and redesigned as a new quad, visually reconnecting the school along with removing a physical barrier and under-utilized portable classrooms. Included in the new quad is a large outdoor gathering space for presentations, small groups and informal student gathering at breaks.
