Marin Country Day School

Corte Madera, CA

Marin Country Day School’s K-8 school campus and playground design was completed by a diverse design review group made up of school parents, design professionals, city employees, and BCDC. The school community also benefited from donated construction management services which helped ensure the project was completed within budget.

The design integrates bioswales to minimize pollution to the bay. MPA Design prepared the Master Plan which features a curvilinear green open space and an informal amphitheater with grass seating adjacent to the multipurpose room designed by EHDD. The new children’s playground includes historic remnants of the site such as an old red barn and a brick terrace framed by ornamental cherry trees at its gateway. Other special features of the school grounds include a vegetable garden and unique entry gate designed using low-cost materials. Large oak trees were planted to match the mature oaks on the surrounding hills, tying the site to  the nearby landscape.
