Santa Fe, NM
Santa Fe’s new 62,000 square foot elementary school opened in August 2010. The design promotes a sustainable science-based learning environment for 467 students in grades K-6. Each classroom enjoys direct access to its own enclosed “outdoor classroom.”
Energy-efficient features include natural daylighting, a rainwater harvesting system, and a ground source heat pump HVAC system. The project has applied for LEED certification.
