IDG+ Architects designed this beautiful 83,700 square foot school, which was named after Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, to serve 650 students.
The design concept was inspired by colors that support concentration and information absorption.
This vibrant and purposeful color scheme is one of the first elements to communicate the message behind the design -- on both visual and psychological levels.
This innovative facility solved community needs and enrollment growth while looking to the horizon for determining future student interests and skills.
The school serves students in Pre-K through the Fifth Grade and features an open central library and collaborative learning spaces. These collaborative learning spaces create a unique and inspirational academic experience.
Interior finishes include terrazzo flooring, ceramic tiling, visual display boards, folding partitions, custom millwork and an elevator as well as state-of-the-art mechanical, plumbing, electrical and technology systems.
The 83,700-square-foot campus includes an administrative area, media center, library, art and music classrooms, gymnasium, dining/stage, central plant, playgrounds, and parking.
"We were delighted to bring our best work to this 21st Century School. Our team worked with educators to design into the future.
Using light and color, we lit up the entire school while simultaneously making the most of sustainable building materials."
