McKINLEY AVENUE ELEMENTARY COMPREHENSIVE MODERNIZATION
LOS ANGELES UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT
Together with our design-build partners, Kemp Bros. Construction, and the Los Angeles Unified School District, our design revitalized and updated a nearly 100-year old elementary campus impacted by decades of urban exposure and aging. Long suffering from lack of shade and green space, a new exterior green belt surrounds the campus and introduces landscape back into the surrounding neighborhood, while the interior grounds and playground space create a cohesive fabric that underlies and unifies the campus. When completed, the 21st-Century learning environment will include two new classroom buildings, multipurpose room, administration building with library and parent center, a standalone kinder village, and extensive outdoor learning areas.
