BEYOND THE STATS

  • Established in 1997, Westerly School is a small private school for grades K through 8 in an industrial area of Long Beach. KFA’s new master plan builds upon the existing double quadrangle plan.
  • The Arts Building, adjacent to an existing amphitheater, is comprised of two wings for performance and visual arts. The building’s form defines a garden that can be used for exhibition and performance, serving as an extension of the interior teaching spaces. Simple and economical materials respond to the modest budget.
  • The Pavilion is a large, flexible performance and gymnasium space, surrounded by lower offices, lockers, support spaces and a classroom. A covered arcade along the offices creates a protected walkway from the street and presents a prominent facade for the school entry.
