Thompson School District

Ponderosa elementary school

The design intent is a building that is innovative without being harsh - an architecture that incorporates the surrounding landscape, materials, and colors that will satisfy the neighborhood population.

It is a careful organization of volumes and patterns which are crisp, clean and contemporary. The well organized plan which includes a separation of public/academic spaces, a clear circulation path with limited distance to the cafeteria/gym/playground and the quality of daylight are some of the factors which enticed the District to use this design as a prototype school.
