From the 2021 Educational Interiors Showcase: Dressel Elementary School

Oct. 18, 2021
The project received a Gold Citation in American School & University's Educational Interiors Showcase as an exemplary common areas design.

The new Dressel Elementary School in St. Louis, Mo., creates a “school within a school” where six intimately scaled “home schools” in two-story classroom wings share common facilities linked by a generously glazed walkway.

Each classroom wing contains 110 or fewer students. This arrangement creates a comfortably scaled “home school” for its students, each with its own special character, that can easily access shared facilities in an arrangement that minimizes circulation for all students.
