After a devastating fire destroyed most of Memorial Elementary School’s original building, DIGroupArchitecture was commissioned to design a brand new facility for 650 students in grades Pre-K thru 5. The form of the 78,000 sf building and its characteristic pitched roofs was highly influenced by surrounding residences. Organizationally, the building is designed as two separate buildings connected on either end by glass corridors. The resulting courtyard between the buildings is fully secure and directly accessible by the Pre-K classrooms.
