Studio W worked with Red Hook Capital Partners to develop an elementary school campus for Scholarship PREP Public Schools. The campus occupies a site that is under an acre in size, so efficiency was key to provide their requested program, including a main building, covered lunch shelter and play yard space. The play yard design incorporated drop-off lanes as dual-use areas that become part of the play yard during school hours. The main building consists of administration, support spaces and 17 classrooms to support 450 students in grades TK-4th.

The campus is located on a large arterial street less than a mile from the original campus that was co-locating with a church. The design of the school reflects the urban setting by connecting the fa├žades of the main building and the lunch shelter to create a physical separation of the main play yard. The materials included perforated metal, metal and cementitious panels, along with traditional smooth plaster to provide texture and variation across the building.
