Embracing Old Charm in New Design

With 19th century masonry buildings surrounding the site, the brick facades embrace the area’s established aesthetic and visually tie it through material to the public school that it replaces. Though structural damage forced the city to demolish the school, its original arched entryway was incorporated into the new buildings to create a monumental senior lobby.

Creating Healthy, Vibrant Communities

Schoolhouse Terrace achieved LEED Silver certification by embracing innovative green design elements, including a green roof to reduce the buildings carbon footprint, double-aluminum pane windows for daylighting, and low-flow energy efficient plumbing fixtures.
