Jury comments: This expansion and renovation project stands as an example of one of our most effective climate action tools: the reuse of existing buildings.The new addition seems like it could have always been there. The interiors of the entire project strike a balance between polish and approachability, making the student spaces clean and inviting with a simple palette and well-placed details. A variety of comfortable learning and social spaces make this a compelling, community-minded school.
