DTW Architects designed this addition and renovation of an elementary school located on a small urban campus in an historic district. The addition, which added a media center, an art room and a music room, blended aesthetically with the existing building, and was linked to it with a breezeway, which also created ADA access to the existing playfields and playground area. The entire existing building was renovated with new thermally-efficient windows and roof that provided a high energy-efficient building to the owner. New energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems also contributed to the building’s overall energy savings.
