Completed: 2008

with FBT Architects

The design for this new elementary school included landscaping and playground development for one of the fastest growing schools on Albuquerque’s West Side.  The landscape design incorporates xeric plantings that are low maintenance and water thrifty, yet colorful and complementary to the architecture.  The playground includes areas for children from kindergarten through fifth grade with a wide variety of colorful, age appropriate equipment; court games; seating; and shade.  The playground is completely ADA accessible and incorporates a dedicated structure specifically for special needs children.
