The 74,800 SF Vinson Owen Elementary School is a new neighborhood school designed for grades K-5 located in the Town of Winchester. The school is designed to encourage parent and community access without disturbing classrooms by locating large core spaces near the entry. Grouping these functions creates both a visual and physical connection in order to share resources and allow for the integration of project based learning. The project is built into a hill with access from the rear at the second floor. The design brings abundant daylight into the public spaces creating a bright and engaging interior.
