This MatSu Borough Elementary School had outgrown its existing building and needed to expand to a new site. We worked closely with the design team to develop a site plan separating vehicles and pedestrian circulation while maintaining existing vegetative buffers. Playgrounds will lead to fields, which will lead to the wooded trail system beyond. A new entry plaza will direct students, parents, staff and visitors to the main building entrance. An outdoor classroom area provide teachers an expanded facility, and a custom dog sled play structure reminds students of the school's namesake.
