The new building features a light filled extra-wide stairway to display student art work, and it is linked to the existing campus buildings by a second level walkway covered with photovoltaic panels.
  • A large operable garage door at the new multi-purpose space creates a highly flexible indoor/outdoor space, used for large school functions, sports and the performing arts.
  • The new building features an area to display student artwork to passersby on Broadway, and is clad with reclaimed redwood and smooth white stucco, all adding to the beautification of the community street view.
