Renton School District

Renton Park Elementary School replaces an existing facility that was constructed in the 1960’s, and was physically and programmatically outdated. The facility you see today is located in order to preserve existing fields, separate pedestrian, vehicular and bus traffic, and to enhance interior daylighting.

The instruction spaces are organized around a meandering corridor with “breakout” spaces that encourage staff and student interaction and allow natural light to reach to the interior circulation. High clearstory windows wash the central lobby with daylight. This lobby is the hub that connects the administration area, the gym and the remaining portions of the school.

Additional features include covered student waiting, sun screening, interior wood detailing and integrated audio visual data systems in each instructional space.

This project completed within a tight timeline. Design, permit, build and occupancy was complete in a less than 24 month schedule.
