Sequoyah School Expansion
(# 570)
Category:
Images Description Credits
Located on the planned route of a freeway extension, Sequoyah School's century-old campus was, until recently, slated for demolition. The current 11,700sf expansion project, constructed at a cost of $2,800,000, weaves into a well-worn fabric of craftsman and mid-century buildings that includes the works of Smith & Williams and Garret Eckbo, and extends it into a formerly underused area.

Designed around Sequoyah's place-based pedagogy which allows the students' relationship to the surrounding environment to inform teaching and learning, the project doubles the school’s classroom area within a cohesive new campus of multi-functional, flexible spaces. The structures echo the spirit of the original architecture, through scale, texture and organization, while providing a sustainable, contemporary interpretation for a new generation. Sequoyah School Expansion brings the campus's heritage into the sunlight while enabling the school to play a more permanent role in the community.
