Urban School

Private High School
San Francisco, California



Working in collaboration with the Pfau Long Architects, Groundworks Office developed concepts for three new courtyards, a roof garden and streetscape as part of the school expansion.  Each courtyard is intimate and uses a simple palette of materials to create spaces for students to use and occupy.  The roof garden is kept as a flexible space that will be used for a variety of organized and ad-hoc events.  The design incorporates stormwater structures that increase water quality as well as create educational opportunities for students.
