Colony Oak Elementary School

Colony Oak is an existing elementary school in the Central Valley that was built in 1992. The District elected to build all portable classrooms and restrooms with a permanent Multi-Purpose and Administration Building. Rather than a traditional modernization 25 years later, the District is replacing all portables with new slab on grade STEM classrooms and changing to a K-8 campus. The old campus will remain operational as the new campus is built on the surrounding playgrounds. The old campus will be demolished and become the central quad.

Facing the quad are the existing MP building and the heart of their new STEM program: a Tech Lab, a Media Lab, a Physics Lab, and a Multi-Purpose Science Lab. These specialty teaching spaces have direct access to outdoor expansion in the quad for robotics and engine building via a wide roll-up door. All other standard classrooms have a “front door” main entry, but also have “back door” access to outdoor space. Abundant natural daylighting and fresh air ventilation is emphasized throughout. Equipment and penetrations do not interfere with any new shed roofs, which face south and southwest for future solar panels. Colony Oak and Ripon USD are in the heart of almond farming country and its roots are in agriculture. The District is making a big statement about their educational program as all their campuses will eventually become models of STEM schools in the area.

Moreno Valley HS, Culinary Arts

The design approach to the building’s elevations is to match the new 45,000 sf classroom addition that is presently under construction and the existing school buildings which have brick exterior finishes.

The proposed culinary arts building at Moreno Valley High School is a 25,000 sf, single story masonry construction building with metal stud interior framing. It consists of 8 classrooms, one culinary arts teaching kitchen and a dining facility to accommodate 84 people. The design intent for the dining space is to afford the students a facility that will provide a practical learning environment to display their culinary skills. With the use of an operable partition wall, the dining space has the flexibility of accommodating small groups up to 36 people. The design goal is to have the feel of a commercial restaurant that will also serve the catering needs of the future nearby performing arts building.

New Horizon School

The new Upper Campus for New Horizon School is the second campus for this expanding private school. Located just a few miles from their existing K-6 facility, the new Upper Campus will serve Grades 6-12. The campus sits on four acres of commercial property in suburban Irvine, California. The new two-story, steel framed structure houses approximately 60,000 sf of programmed educational space. Important building elements include classrooms, labs, a gymnasium, locker rooms and a ‘black box’ theater/lecture hall. The site development includes parking, lunch patio, exterior hard court and competitively lit athletic field.
