A community finds its heart.
THE SCHOOL HOUSE
The City of Woodinville’s 3.3-acre Civic Campus site has long been a center for the community.
Beginning in the 1890s, the northern part of the site served as the location for a school, gymnasium, and athletic fields for the children of Woodinville. The Old Woodinville Schoolhouse was originally built in 1909 and was the center of the community.
The revitalization of the schoolhouse and recreation center was key to reflecting the area's strong sense of community and desire to create a center for their town.
We started by understanding the city of Woodinville –where the connection to water, farm, and forest are celebrated in the buildings and landscapes.
We designed a variety of unique public spaces, inspired by the character of Woodinville, to create an intimate authentic community experience.
“Community” emerged as a key word during planning efforts undertaken for the Civic Campus site. The final design reflects the citizen’s strong desire to create a center for their town.
