From 2003 through 2005, Redwood High School underwent its first comprehensive modernization in 40 years. The grim main classroom block was often referred to by students, faculty, administrators and community members as “prison-like.” These conditions were mitigated through the application of a bright new palette of colors and the addition of simple perforated sunscreens, which provided both light control and exterior shape and shadow. In addition, the school’s new theater lobby is now strategically placed at the forefront of the school, providing a dramatic and inviting marquee and entrance.
