Hugo Reid Elementary School
(# 688)

Images Description Credits
The School Districtís requirement for educational amenities equity across the Districtís elementary schools was both the opportunity and constraint on this small site. By removing an obsolete 1,400 SF building a site was created for a new 7,350 SF Student Services building housing Library, Media Center, Student Support and Staff Support meeting the amenity requirements.

The new structure is an expression of program, site constraints and a desire to unify old and new with one powerful move. The roof form cantilevers beyond its supports creating entry porch, reading terrace and covered walkway. The roof tilts upward creating a higher volume for the Media Center providing an overhang, shading the glazing. The roofís easterly lower scale creates a single supervision point for both the park and the school lunch area. The new structure has transformed this neglected site into a community beacon demonstrating the powerful impact of local school bonds.
