The Ross School project, a K-8 facility, included many unique design elements including a weather station, water feature, informal outdoor amphitheater, habitat garden, classroom gardens, street frontage landscaping, and greening a new landscaped courtyard. It was selected as a California High Performance School (CHPS) and is featured in the Division of the State Architect Video Series for energy and water resource conservation. The design also uses water elements as educational tools, low-cost materials, and drought tolerant, native planting.
Phase 2 of this project included a preliminary feasibility study for replacement of the remaining campus, including the K-6 classrooms, administration, playgrounds facilities, courtyard, and outdoor amphitheater spaces.
