DUVENECK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
The project provided a two-story classroom building and kindergarten/first grade quad to replace portable classrooms for growing enrollment. The library was relocated and enlarged. Sustainability highlights include daylighting, high-efficiency lighting, natural ventilation and low-emitting materials. Outdoor overhangs allow for children to eat, read, and sit outside for an al fresco classroom in the shade.

OHLONE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
The project replaced portable classrooms with a beautiful, new two-story building with a living roof, added landscaping, and took advantage of the organic school farm already in place. The building maintains an indoor/outdoor flow, and sits next to the farm to facilitate use of the new science/flex room as a resource.
