Raymond Elementary School Addition and Modernization


Raymond, Alberta

This elementary school modernization in the town of Raymond features a bright open gathering space central to the school community. It was created by converting the existing gymnasium to a clerestoried Library, and small amphitheatre opening onto a larger space that allows for formal and informal gathering. Playful red roof forms on the interior provide a unique sense of place. Funding also allowed for the design and construction of a Parent Hub Centre and Student Health Initiative Project space associated with the school. The building shadowed LEED certification.
