From the 2022 Architectural Portfolio: Garrison Elementary School

Feb. 6, 2023
Jurors awarded the project a Citation in the Renovation category.

Garrison Elementary School in Washington, D.C., underwent a full modernization of the 61,000-square-foot building with an addition and extensive improvements to the 3.67-acre brownfield site.

The project enlarged classrooms to accommodate 30 students, enabling teachers to organize spaces for a range of approaches and providing flexibility for small breakout areas. An exterior area with native plants, a bioretention garden, and wooden stools create opportunities to use outdoor spaces as classrooms. Art scattered throughout the grounds engages visitors, and interior murals enliven transitional spaces and offer colorful inspiration of historical narratives.
