COLUMBIA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL Addition

Columbia is a rare 2-story design for elementary schools. Because of site constraints and required play areas, retaining walls helped to alleviate a thirty foot transition with stairs that allowed for a larger and less disruptive queuing for bus pick-up and drop-off. Educational units included music, science, and art labs. A separate gymnasium was linked by way of covered walkways and a bridge made the connection to the existing school building.
