CATAWBA TRAIL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
This elementary school was adapted for its site from a prototype design. The plan is organized into academic “houses” to create a smaller-scale learning environment for students, with an internal courtyard providing natural light and outdoor play space for its 750 students.
Sustainability strategies included stacked classrooms, daylighting, and high-performance mechanical systems on the 26-acre site, with a footprint which allows future growth.
