Pine Elementary School revitalized a three-acre urban site of a former university near downtown Omaha, Nebraska. The compact site, with a 34-foot drop across the site, enabled the new three-story facility to have exits onto grade from all levels. The spaces were organized to maximize both the efficiency of students moving throughout the building and the daylighting of classrooms and interior spaces. The building’s exterior design pulls elements from the surrounding neighborhood, which has 100-plus-year-old homes and structures as well as modern buildings.
