Designed along a series of sweeping arcs, Edneyville Elementary School provides each classroom with a view of the surrounding landscape. Brick clad administrative and gymnasium structures on the perimeter present a formal entry and shield the inner arc of classrooms, which are articulated by an exposed wood roof-structure and fiber-cement rainscreen. A two-story central atrium with continuous windows provides ample light in the building. By creating a connection between classroom and outdoor playscape, the building elevates its site from a picturesque backdrop to an immersive experience for students.
