Stillwater Public Schools wanted to replace Will Rogers Elementary with more than a new building. The district sought a true community school that would bring students, teachers, families and the Stillwater community together, even after the school bell rang.
The process of creating program requirements and design concepts involved every instructor, administrator and staff member. By listening carefully to those needs, every space in the building design is honed to work as perfectly as possible — right down to where the teacher sits in each classroom.
Shading devices projecting from the south side of the building create texture, while the colorful skin of the building draws attention of those driving by.
