Barton Elementary School
Barton Elementary School's modernization and expansion increased capacity from 234 to 1,107 student stations on a very limited site. The major challenge was fitting the additional 120,000 square feet of academic programs onto the site while existing buildings remained operational. Skylights and interior atriums bring natural lighting into interior spaces. Existing buildings were renovated to blend with the new structure and translucent domes used to enclose the interior atriums provide architectural interest and unique passage between buildings.
