From the 2023 Architectural Portfolio: Cottrell Elementary School

Jan. 23, 2024
The project was recognized as an outstanding design in the Elementary Schools category.

Cottrell Elementary School is the Lumpkin County (Georgia) School System’s new two-story school designed to accommodate up to 885 students in 57 instructional units. Designed to replace and modernize an aging facility, Cottrell Elementary School creates a space that feels dynamic, uplifting, and vibrant. The jewel of Cottrell Elementary is without a doubt the school’s media center. It features a cheerful hanging art installation meant to resemble flying books, as well as beautiful jewel-toned custom casework, a sleek all-glass breakaway makerspace, and a whimsical twisty slide.
