Mercer Island, Washington
Northwood Elementary School
Providing learning experiences at every step, the overall site design at Northwood Elementary balances a celebration of nature and culture and symbolizes the school district’s principles of preservation, durability, sustainability, and lifelong learning. The school’s daily social and learning functions are fortified by creating spaces that communicate a strong sense of civic pride and positive social interaction, mixed with hands-on, project-based outdoor learning opportunities. Engaging social spaces for the public and school communities and active hands-on learning spaces are immediately adjacent to internal learning areas. Many sizes and types of spaces are included, providing a wide variety of experiences.
