From the 2022 Architectural Portfolio: Jill Stone Elementary School at Vickery Meadow

April 4, 2023
The project was recognized in the Elementary School category.

Jill Stone Elementary School at Vickery Meadow in Dallas, Texas, is both a replacement campus and a relief school for a second elementary. The campus is built on a heavily treed site that affords unique opportunities for outdoor engagement. The architectural form follows an arc to serve three distinct functions: minimal site disturbance, maximum views to nature and daylight on the north, and a welcome embrace of the community to the south. These functions occur under a single monolithic gesture, a floating roof that shelters three levels of instructional space. This modern “tree fort” offers students and educators playful opportunities to connect with nature.
