the design process

A new, state of the art 83,000 SF, K-6 elementary school facility in Marana, AZ, completed in the summer of 2016. The result of masterplanning with the Marana Unified School District. Winslow + Partners worked with the teachers, administrators, parents, students and district officials to create the programming of spaces that encompassed the district's vision of a school for the 21st century.

The classrooms are designed with 3 walls and an operable glass partition that opens upon a classroom commons area to allow teachers flexibility in how they arrange students according to different needs or tasks, cirricula, learning styles, and special needs.  Writing on tackable surfaces are on all sides of the classrooms to further enhance that flexibility. The school is designed around a school commons area, where students can gather for assemblies, exhibit projects, or socialize with friends.
