New Cafeteria and Classroom Building
This new school cafeteria and classroom building was built to serve two school communities on an existing urban middle school campus. CCPA classrooms are above, and both Roots and CCPA share the cafeteria below. With the aim of creating connections and fostering community, the building was designed with full height glazing in the cafeteria, protective roof and building overhangs, and a generous circulation path through and around the building. Protective overhangs that shelter the building are a metaphor for the school’s nurturing relationship to the middle school students.
