Scalable design individualizes space within a unified campus aesthetic.
To stretch bond funding, SLZUSD worked with AMS and DSK Architects to create a scalable design that could be customized for multiple high school campuses. Arroyo High School served as the design prototype, fulfilling a diversity of needs in three modular buildings that combine general classrooms and special education suites featuring restrooms equipped with ceiling hoists for assistance. A teaching kitchen expands functionality, helping special needs students learn life skills. To add value to a standard AMS FORM Parapet building, SLZUSD elevated finishes and included creative upgrades like architectural bump-outs, full-wall markerboards and exterior metal cladding. A custom operable storefront window system maximizes ventilation and natural light—healthier for students and energy-saving for the District.
- The custom design is being replicated without kitchen at San Lorenzo High School
- Parapet roof works with site-built metal shade structures to create a modern look
- Classrooms open to an outdoor learning/gathering area with adjacent greenspace
