Grand Saline Elementary School

Elementary schools for communities represent the common gathering spot for events and activities. Grand Saline Elementary School includes ample library space for reading and perusing books and resource materials, the gym includes natural lighting to reach out for sustainability and energy savings. Each grade is clustered around common area pods that allow for group viewing of educational materials and learning opportunities. The science core has access to a learning garden thriving with butterfly attracting plants. The overall layout of the school separates individual automobile drop-off from bus drop-off.

The design reflects the historical character of the rural community while maintaining efficient operations for the school district. Sustainable and energy saving solutions include spray foam insulation along the roof, modest interior ceiling heights so the district only heats/cools the space people occupy. The material selection was a balance between longevity, ease of maintenance, functionality and design character.
