Orient K–8 School

Orient School District

Orient, Washington

Constructed in 1910, the existing Orient School Building is one of the oldest continuously used school houses in Washington State. The gymnasium was added in 1937 as well as a number of small additions. Interior remodels throughout the years resulted in a plan that was confusing and inefficient.  

This project involves fully renovating the 14,600 square foot school and construction of a 3,350 square foot addition. The primary goal was to refurbish the building’s exterior fabric while protecting its historical value. The interior was modernized to create an appropriate learning environment and bring the building up to current codes, safety standards and comfort levels. The addition was designed to be compatible with the historical building's materials and massing.
