About Shoreline School District (Washington)
Shoreline School District of Washington State intended to expand the creative offerings available to their students. In particular, the school planned an expansion of their Music Education programs and needed additional facility space optimized to this use to accomodate the program.
The school wanted to construct facilities that provided an upscale aesthetic appearance, but retained the flexibility for relocation or expansion should their demographics or student enrollment change.
The buildings utilized a unique combination of standard modular construction and factory-built pitched roof sections and clerestory windows to enhance daylighting and increase interior volume. The buildings feature a solid floor structure composed of strategically supported cement board.
The vertical spaces in the classrooms were also designed to optimize acoustics for the music programs to be housed within.
The buildings also feature a unique site-finished front entry canopy that is an extension of the factory-built roof sections. The project features a grade-level entry that eliminates the need for steps or ramps. All eight buildings utilize a similar board and batten exterior finish with a variety of color schemes that blend seamlessly into the existing campus structures.
