St. Matthew's Parish School
For St. Matthew’s Parish School, Lake|Flato took advantage of a challenging site pressed against the base of a hill to create an inspiring set of classrooms and library. Never rising above two stories, the low-scale porches and projected roofs keep the building in scale with the elementary school children. The use of wood, copper and smooth stucco blends into the canyon environment. Exterior walkways and bridges provide outdoor connections, promenades and second-story porches that take advantage of the area’s climate and spectacular views. In collaboration with Gensler.
