Classroom Redesign and New Art Spaces

Larkspur-Corte Madera School District
Corte Madera, Calif.

  • Completion Date: October 2015
  • Square Footage: 10,787 (New Construction) / 26,161 (Modernization)
  • Final Construction Cost: $6.8M

Designed to bring this elementary school in line with 21st century learning environments, existing classroom wings were modernized, including the addition of spaces between each pair of classrooms. These new, flexible spaces enhance the school’s existing day lit classrooms and allow for teachers to work together on collaborative projects. New outdoor learning areas enrich the overall redesign of the classrooms and allow for an integrated curriculum extending beyond the walls. Later, six new classrooms were built using these same principals, as well as the addition of art storage spaces, a kiln room and outdoor art sinks.
