Basswood Elementary School – Keller ISD
Location:Fort Worth, Texas
Services:Architecture Programming / Strategic Planning Construction Administration Interior Design
The design of this new elementary school adheres to the district standards, while accommodating the small site (10.3 acres). The plan for this facility includes a two story classroom wing with a one story cafetorium/gymnasium wing to create an “L” shaped plan.
The building is designed to house 650 students, kindergarten through 4th grade, with predominately sloped metal roofs and deep eaves. These design elements, as well as window orientation were incorporated to reduce east/west sun exposure, integrating sustainable design practices.
