Elementary Schools – Additions/Renovations

Most of STR’s elementary school work involves additions and renovations, creating 21st century learning environments at existing, 20th century facilities. This includes buildings of different vintages and architectural styles. Working with our clients and the communities they serve, we design additions to match, complement, or stand out as a new focal point. Spaces we frequently design include classrooms, gymnasiums, learning commons, dining facilities, and project rooms. We create new or renovated spaces with the same flexibility inherent to new schools to accommodate ever-changing technology, curriculum, and enrollment.
